Tank Tip #2 - Overfill Prevention



Fuel tanks are designed with a vapor space for the expansion of fuel due to changes in temperature and elevation. Overfilling a fuel tank can cause serious problems. When a tank is overfilled and vapor space is not maintained, fuel system sensors may trigger a check engine light, distance to empty calculations may become inaccurate, and tanks could even leak - creating a fire hazard. To avoid costly diagnostics, Transfer Flow recommends the following procedure:

• First, park vehicle on level surface and turn off engine
• Slowly remove the gas cap to release vapor; then insert nozzle until it stays in place without support
• Squeeze handle to maximum flow rate and fill until first automatic shut off
• Wait 10 seconds for vapor equalization, then reengage nozzle
• Do not continue after second automatic shut off
• Remove nozzle and replace gas cap

Follow this simple procedure and you'll spend more time on the road and less time and money on repairs. For more information on proper fueling procedures, or a Transfer Flow fuel tank for your vehicle, call us at 1-800-442-0056, or check us out online at TransferFlow.com.

FARMINGTON HILLS, MI (Nov. 7, 2012) – Registration is now open for the work truck industry’s leading educational forum on clean vehicle technologies, the Green Truck Summit. The Green Truck Summit kicks off the extensive educational conference at The Work Truck Show® 2013 on March 5. The Summit gives fleet managers and other industry professionals practical ideas and real-world solutions for implementing new green practices.

The Green Truck Summit, presented by International Truck, is produced jointly by NTEA and CALSTART. It runs March 5−6, 2013. The Work Truck Show 2013 trade show floor is open March 6−8, with educational sessions starting March 5. The Green Truck Summit and The Work Truck Show are held at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, IN.

“This event has really grown over the last few years as people have seen the positive impact new clean technology can have on their operations,” says Doyle Sumrall, NTEA senior director of business development. “The Green Truck Summit is a can’t-miss event for forward-thinking fleet managers and anyone looking to gain a competitive advantage through green initiatives.”

Topics for the Green Truck Summit 2013 include clean technology and fuel trends, deployment strategies, viable alternative fuels and funding opportunities.
