Fuel Filling Procedures

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, spills during boat fueling are a major contributor to gas and oil pollution of our waterways. Another source of this type of pollution is marine engines of inefficient design, which discharge unburned fuel into the air and water.

What can boaters do? First, when shopping for a boat or motor, consider purchasing vessel engines that are cleaner burning, including direct injection two-stroke engines and four-stroke engines. Fueling spill-related pollution can be avoided by following these practices:

  • Think in terms of preventing even a drop of fuel from entering the water, especially when fueling at a dock or along the shoreline. It is best to fill your tank away from the water.
  • Avoid overfilling; fill slowly to avoid spilling. Remember, excess fuel will flow out the vent (and into the water) when it becomes warm and expands. Know how much fuel your tank holds and maintain a reliable fuel gauge. Add a fuel/air separator in your tank vent hose. It prevents fuel from pouring out the vent when vapor builds up.
  • Make sure that all fittings associated with the fuel system are tight and not leaking.
  • Never leave a gas hose unattended while refueling. Remember, the automatic shutoff on the gas nozzle may not work on your boat.
  • Label your fuel fill cap to prevent anyone mistaking it for the water or sewage tank.
  • Stock your boat with petroleum-absorbent pads to use while refueling. Put one in your bilge, too.
