2-3.2.2 External Fuel Line Connection. Each generator set has provisions for obtaining fuel from an
external source, such as a 5-gallon fuel can or a 55-gallon diesel fuel container. This enables operation for
long intervals without frequent refilling of the fuel tank. To use an external fuel source:
The fuel in this generator set is highly explosive. Do not smoke or use open
flame when performing maintenance. Flames and explosion could result in
severe personnel injury or death.
Do not attempt to fuel generator set AN/MJQ-42 at main fuel port.
a. Place the external fuel source (2, Figure 2-4) several feet, but no more than 25 feet, away from
the generator set
