Gasoline container safety

Postby hatchet » Sat Jun 13, 2009 8:27 pm

This happened today while refueling the weedeater. It was hot here today , I was trimming around the back porch and paused to refuel. My wife took this opportunity to say something. As I lifted the plastic fuel container out of the cart , I flipped the lid off with my thumb, the pressure inside the gas can blew gasoline in my face, got some in my left eye. Thankfully I was wearing safety glass's . Let's use good judgement in handling any kind of fuel. Vent those cans carefully
