Oh, those unlucky leaks!
Ever gone on a long trip and run out of gas on the way? It's even worse if you find out that a fuel leak was the cause.
That's why it's important to take a good look at the fuel transfer lines on your Stryker, especially before a long training mission or operation.
Just open the access plate at the rear of the vehicle and check the lines for fuel leaks. If you see any, report 'em! After all, who wants a highly flammable liquid sloshing around under their feet?
Before you reinstall the access plate, take a minute to clean away any dirt or sand that's built up on the recessed lip of the floor plate. That crud can keep the access plate from fastening properly. It'll go flying the next time you hit a big bump!
