WARNING: FUEL LINE SPILLS AND LEAKAGE ARE DANGEROUS. FUEL CAN IGNITE AND CAUSE SERIOUS INJURIES OR DEATH AND DAMAGE. FUEL CAN ALSO IRRITATE SKIN AND EYES. TO PREVENT THIS, DO NOT DAMAGE THE SEALING SURFACE OF THE FUEL PUMP UNIT WHEN REMOVING OR INSTALLING.

CAUTION: Disconnecting/connecting the quick release connector without cleaning it may possibly cause damage to the fuel pipe and quick release connector. Always clean the quick release connector joint area before disconnecting/connecting, and make sure that it is free of foreign material.
