Fuel is flammable and toxic to eyes, skin, and respiratory tract. Skin/eye protection is required. Avoid
repeated/prolonged contact. Use only in well-ventilated areas. Keep away from open flames or other
sources of ignition. Post FUEL FLAMMABLE/NO SMOKING signs around the area. Be sure a fire
extinguisher is available.
