When you peek into the garage or under a kart driver's tent, there is an accessory which often goes unnoticed, but which is always there: the petrol tank. Of course, it is difficult to identify a tank or a drum of petrol as the decisive element for your performance but knowing about and assimilating some basic information about the rules on the transport of petrol could protect you from many unexpected issues and avoid a few headaches. With this “How to do to”, TKART wants to rush to the rescue of all those kart drivers who, when faced with an online shop or the shelf of a specialised shop, ask themselves: “Which is the right tank for me?”. All that remains is to find out.
N.B. To complete the article, however, as always, we await your opinion and perhaps some information on what regulations are in force in your country of origin are regarding the transport of liquid fuels. In addition, of course, to any information that can enhance this article and be useful to the TKART Community.
It is important to underline that gasoline is an extremely dangerous substance because of its flammability and the fumes of the substances it is composed of. Precisely for this reason, there are precise rules in countries that regulate their transport, handling and storage. It would always be good practice, therefore, to consult the legislation in force in your country (or the one in which you intend to go karting) in order not to be fined and, more importantly, to protect yourself from accidents caused by incorrect "management" of this substance. A few examples? Browse the gallery below.
N.B. Following our analysis, we cannot help but ascertain that there are rules of conduct common to all legislation. In particular: use only containers approved for transport (we will discuss this in the next slide); make sure to fasten the cans on the vehicle so that they cannot tip over; do not approach flames and do not smoke near a petrol can.
