Basic Rules for Drivers
This type of insurance policy must be taken out at the time when a vehicle is purchased, or when a vehicle undergoes a safety inspection. This insurance covers the minimum amount of damages to be paid to the victims of automobile accidents and their families.
You can also take out a voluntary insurance policy, which provides more cover than the compulsory automobile liability insurance. We strongly recommend you to take out this type of additional automobile insurance to cover yourself in the event of a serious accident.

Self-service filling stations have easy-to-see signs at their entrance displaying in Japanese “セルフ” or “セルフサービス”
Self-service filling stations have fixed gas pumps with safety attachments. Some stations also have fuel pumps that are not designed for self-service. Drivers may not use these.
1.When entering the self-service filling station, look at the sign to confirm that the fuel pump is for self-serve use and pull up to the pump so that it is easy to refuel, taking care not to hit any equipment.
2.Put your car into park and turn off the ignition.
3.Unlock the door to the gas tank using the switch in your car.
4.Be sure to close the windows and doors when leaving the vehicle.
(1)Select the type of fuel for your car. Some cars use gasoline, while others use diesel. It is important for drivers to know the proper type of fuel for their car. This has nothing to do with the size or type of vehicle. Take extra caution when you are refueling a car that you do not normally drive such as the company car or a rent-a-car, or if you are using a self-service station for the first time.
(2)Be sure to touch the anti-static mat to remove any static that may have accumulated on your body before opening the fuel cap.
If there is no anti-static mat, be sure to remove any static that may have accumulated on your body by touching a metal portion of your vehicle.
(3)Remove the nozzle for the type of fuel you selected in (1). The type of fuel is labeled near the nozzle (e.g. regular gasoline). If the nozzles or hoses are colored, high octane is always marked in yellow, regular gas is red, and diesel is green.
You may start refueling after the attendant in the control booth has verified safety.
Handle the refueling alone.
Watch that children do not get close to the gas port.
Be sure to follow these instructions when fueling:
①Insert the nozzle securely into the gas port until it fits snugly.
②Pull the trigger on the nozzle until it clicks.
③The gas will automatically stop flowing when it is finished.
④After refueling, be sure to return the nozzle to its original position.
If the self-stopping mechanism activates soon after you begin refueling and you are not able to get gas, consult the attendant for advice on how to fill your tank.
(1)Fire hazards such as lighters and tobacco are strictly prohibited! Gasoline vapor will blow from your gas port as you fill, and any gas drips or spills will cause large amounts of gasoline vapor. Never smoke or use lighters (including the cigarette lighter in your vehicle).
(2)No subdividing gasoline into containers!
Do not subdivide gasoline into containers by yourself.
Always observe all cautions posted at the self-service station.
