4.6. FUEL SYSTEM MAINTENANCE
Escaping diesel or JP fuel under pressure can have sufficient force to
penetrate the skin, causing serious injury or death. Before disconnecting
fuel lines, be sure to relieve pressure. Before applying pressure to the
system, be sure all connections are tight and lines, pipes, and hoses are not
damaged. Keep hands and body away from pinholes and nozzles which
eject fuel under pressure. Use a piece of cardboard or wood, rather than
hands, to search for suspected leaks.
If diesel or JP fuel is injected into skin, seek medical attention immediately.
Failure to comply can result in serious injury.
