Boating Enviro Tips

Besides getting rid of the motor altogether, here are a few steps boaters can take to protect air and water quality:
- Limit engine operation at full throttle
- Eliminate unnecessary idling
- Avoid spilling gasoline
- Use a funnel or a spout with an automatic stop device to prevent overfilling the gas tank
- Close the vent on portable gas tanks when the engine is not in use or when the tank is stored
- Transport and store gasoline out of direct sunlight in a cool, dry place
- Follow the manufacturer's recommended maintenance schedule
