Missing fuel tank cap
You must know the hazards of fuel spillage and fuel contamination, and that a vehicle has this minor defect when the fuel-tank cap is missing.

Insecure fuel tank
You must know that fuel tanks must be securely attached to a vehicle and how to visually inspect fuel-tank security, and that a vehicle has this major defect when a fuel tank isn’t securely mounted or otherwise attached to the vehicle.

Dripping fuel leak
You must know the hazards of fuel that is flammable and an environmental hazard, and that a vehicle has this major defect when there is fuel dripping anywhere from it.

Procedure:
Visually inspect to ensure:

    • Fuel cap(s) are not missing.
    • Fuel tank(s) are secure; where accessible, inspect straps to ensure they are attached (not required to grab or shake fuel tank or straps).
    • Fuel is not leaking from the fuel tank(s) or dripping from anywhere from the vehicle including under engine compartment and fuel tanks.
