Safety Planning - Mixing Gas and Electricity
one step at a time
When reviewing a goal development, don’t overlook safety. Gas and electricity must be adequately separated. For example:
• A carbureted engine should not be near a brushed electric engine or other electronics such as open fuses, relays etc. capable of producing a spark.
• Refueling gas fumes should also be away from any similar electronics.
Additional consideration needs to be thought out for what would happen in the event of minor fender bender to a more deadly roll over. Inertia switches, adequate tie downs, and component separations are all items that need to be considered as part of the goal development plan.
