Preparing A Fuel Supply Site For The H-45 Type II (Liquid Fuel) Heater Operation
1. Select a level fuel supply site, free of debris and open flame, at least 7 feet (2.13 m) from the tent.
2. From the inside of the tent, route the free ends of the fuel supply hose and the overflow hose (set
aside in the earlier section Preparing The Type II (Liquid Fuel) Heater For Operation) outside of the
tent under the tent wall. The fuel supply hose should be routed to the fuel supply location and the
overflow hose should discharge to a safe, downward-sloping, outside location below the level of the
fuel flow control valve. Place a petroleum absorbent mat under the open end of the overflow hose.
A piece of commercial petroleum absorbent material should be placed
under the open end of the overflow hose to catch any fuel that may spill.
Additional commercial products are available to contain large spills.
