STORING OUTBOARD MOTOR
Leaking fuel is a fire hazard. When transporting and storing the outboard motor, close the air vent screw and fuel cock to prevent fuel from leaking.
TRAILERING OUTBOARD MOTOR
The motor should be trailered and stored in the normal running position. If there is insufficient road clearance in this position, then trailer the motor in the tilt position using a motor support device such as a transom saver bar.
Do not use the tilt support lever/knob when trailering the boat. The outboard motor could shake loose from the tilt support and fall. If the motor can not be trailered in the down position, use an additional support device to secure it in the up position.
8Never get under the lower unit while it is tilted, even if a motor support bar is used. Severe injury could occur if the outboard accidentally falls.
8USE CARE when transporting fuel tank, whether in a boat or car.
DO NOT fill fuel container to maximum capacity.
Gasoline will expand considerably as it warms up and can build up pressure in the fuel container. This can cause fuel leakage and a potential fire hazard.
