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:

open flame when performing maintenance. Flames and explosion could
result in severe personal injury or death.
