Ford Escape: General Information / Description and Operation - Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Fuel Systems Health and Safety Precautions

  WARNING: Service of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) or Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) vehicle systems is restricted to qualified personnel and authorized workshops. The required qualifications vary by region. Always observe local laws and legislative directives regarding CNG or LPG vehicle service. Failure to follow this instruction may result in serious personal injury or death.

  WARNING: Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) or Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is highly flammable and toxic when contained in unventilated work areas. Work in a dedicated area with good ventilation and no sources of ignition. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious personal injury or death.

  WARNING: Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is capable of harming eyes or freezing skin. Always wear personal protection gear, including safety goggles and gloves to avoid contact with liquid gas. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious personal injury.

  WARNING: Always observe local regulations regarding storage or indoor parking of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) vehicles. Do not park vehicles near sources of heat, ignition or unventilated open pits. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious personal injury.

  WARNING: Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is heavier than air and will collect in low points in a building, such as drains or work pits. Never discharge a tank inside a building. If possible, tanks should be discharged beforehand by running the vehicle. Any discharge of gas must be done outside in well-ventilated flat areas. Failure to follow these instructions may result in the accumulation of combustible gas, which could cause personal injury or death in a fire or explosion.

  WARNING: Extreme heat such as paint drying ovens will cause an increase in Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) or Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) fuel tank pressure. The fuel tank must be removed before using paint drying ovens with temperatures above 60° C. Failure to follow this instruction may result in a release of combustible gas, which could cause personal injury or death in a fire or explosion.

  WARNING: Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) may present a personal health hazard if handled improperly. Always consult the LPG material safety information sheet before servicing a LPG vehicle. Failure to follow this instruction may result in serious personal injury or death.
