Default Re: reason behind turning the fuel petcock off?

Because, if for some reason your float sticks open it will stop fuel from pouring all over your garage floor. OR ANY leak that may happen after the petcock.
Just a little peice of garbage stuck in the float needle will let fuel overflow. It happens all the time.
