Essential safety instructions

Switch Off Your Engine - your car engine contains a number of spark plugs which constantly spark electricity to ignite the fuel within your engine. It is possible for the vapour from the fuel pump to catch fire.
Do Not Smoke - smoking is the most dangerous thing you can do within a petrol station. As little as 1% of fuel vapour mixed with the oxygen in the air could cause an explosion
Report Any Spills - if you spill any fuel while filling your car, report it to the cashier as soon as possible so they can safely remove any dangers.
Lock Your Car - never leave your car unlocked while going to pay for your fuel. It only takes a second for a thief to steal your car or from your car.
Pay Attention - while crossing from the pumps to the shop to pay for your fuel, be aware of other customers leaving the station, also when you have payed for your fuel and are leaving yourself, check for other customer walking to pay.
Check the the meter has been reset to zero before refueling starts to ensure you only pay for the fuel you receive. This will stop any arguments later.
Be polite and respectful to the staff

CNG Safety

Repeated CNG related explosions are taking a heavy toll of life. The Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is high-pressure gas for which specially designed and fabricated seamless cylinders manufactured in accordance with NZS 5454-1989 standard are used in vehicles. Only the valid licensees/ CNG Stations are authorized to convert vehicles to CNG at their respective facilities. All vehicle owners are, therefore, informed that they should follow the following safety measures: -

Never install CNG kit/ cylinder in the vehicle from any un-authorized road-side CNG conversion workshop/ outlet.
Get vehicle’s CNG system inspected at least once in a year from trained personnel available at CNG Stations for examination of the cylinder, piping, all components, leakage testing etc. to ensure safety.
The owners of CNG fitted public transport vehicles are advised to get their valves, fittings and piping connecting the cylinder tested from the CNG Stations and authorized locations
Any leakage of gas from cylinder valve/ piping/ fittings/ components is of extreme danger. The moment it gets any source of ignition, the gas may catch fire instantly resulting in loss of precious lives. In case any leakage is found in the CNG system of the vehicle, it must be rectified at once.
Never ask for refueling beyond the allowable maximum pressure of 200 Bars.
CNG Cylinder Safety

Ensure that the CNG cylinder installed in the vehicle is within the periodic test life, which is 5 years. In order to determine the validity of the cylinders or in case the cylinder requires testing, the authorized testing labs of the Hydro Carbon Development Institute of Pakistan (HDIP) should be contacted on the following telephone numbers: -
