Avoid Transporting Fuel
I know this is almost impossible in Naija , but as much as you can , avoid transporting fuel in kegs , in your boot,if its inevitable , make sure it isn’t full to the brim and its very stable and upright .Also keep it far away from electrical wires.
Always Do Routine Check Ups
– Before you take a drive , pop open your bonnet , check the fuel nozzles or pipes, make sure they are well fitted and there are no leakages .
– Always check your fuel tank for leaks and cracks .Don’t ignore any , no matter how small.
– Always look around for open or “Unclad” wires and seal them up with a masking tape,a little spark can start a massive fire.
– Make sure your battery terminals are well fitted to prevent unnecessary sparks .
– Replace bad fuses
Keep your boot and inside your car free of paper and other items that can easily catch fire as much as possible .
