Dos and Don’ts of Refueling

Family, safety, school, and many more – “firsts” that many of us live by. But which of these really does come first above all?

Your safety has always been 76 Hawaii’s top priority which is why better lighting has been introduced to many stations across the state. But we also need your help in keeping our stations and friends and family safe by knowing what to do and what not to do while you’re at the pump.

DO:
• Turn off your vehicle while refueling
• Stay near your vehicle’s fueling point while refueling
• Leave your cellphone in the vehicle to avoid a static fire
• Locate and enable the Emergency Shut-Off Valve in the event of a fire

DO NOT:
• Smoke, light matches or lighters while refueling
• Get back into your car while refueling in order to prevent buildup of static electricity
• Overfill or top-off your tank
• Remove the nozzle from your vehicle’s gasoline tank in the event of a fire

Remembering what to do and what not to do while refueling will help us, help you. 76 Hawaii has been serving Hawaii for nearly 90 years and we look forward to continue to serve you in the coming years.

PropaneXchange Made Easy

Are you looking for ways to be a little more sustainable? Look no further – your answer is here.

Hawaii Gas is now offering Oahu residents a way to be more sustainable through its new PropaneXchange program. With a new tank design, you won’t have to worry about running out of propane before your next BBQ since you can see how much propane you have left and when you need to exchange your empty tank. These new tanks are also made of non-corrosive material that is lighter than steel made for easy transport.

Current PropaneXchange locations on O`ahu:

Sand Island 76 – 165 Sand Island Access Rd., Honolulu, HI 96819

Wahiawa 76 – 966 California Ave., Wahiawa, HI 96786

Enchanted Lakes 76 – 1010 Keolu Dr., Kailua, HI 96734

Fun in the Sun

School’s out and it’s time to hit the beach. You’ve got everything to have a great day – towel, floatie, music, and snacks. But what about your sunscreen?

Sunscreen is another important thing to remember when you go to the beach or when you’re exposed to sunlight for an extended period of time. The mixture of several ingredients protects your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays from the sun that can damage and prematurely age the skin. Applying and reapplying sunscreen throughout your time in the sun also reduces the likelihood of getting skin cancer.

Applying your sunscreen between 15-30 minutes before going outside will allow the sunscreen to most efficiently do its job. But what SPF is right for you?

Many think that the higher the SPF, the longer it lasts; not true. Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is the measurable factor of the sunscreen’s ability to protect your skin. But according to a Florida dermatologist, there is close to no difference a SPF 30 and an SPF 45 sunscreen.

“SPF is not a consumer-friendly number,” James Spencer, MD, said. “It is logical for someone to think that an SPF of 30 is twice as good as an SPF 15 and so on. But that is not how it works.”

Spencer recommends his patients to use an SPF 30 sunscreen. An SPF sunscreen will block 97% of UVB rays, and a SPF 45 sunscreen blocking 98% of UVB rays. After that, the SPF numbers just get silly, Spencer said.

Because some sunscreens have an SPF value well exceeding 80 SPF, most experts agree that the amount of protection between that and a SPF 30 lotion is not great. The difference is reapplying after every couple of hours of immediately after drying off from swimming or excessively sweating.

But you also might be wondering if there’s a difference between sunscreens and how you apply them. Spencer said there is no major difference between lotions, spray-on, or stick sunscreens – just as long as you use it and reapply.

Kama`aiana Rewards is here to help you save you money by giving you points for every dollar you spend to use like cash for future purchases. But we also want to make sure you are safe when you’re celebrating your savings in the sun. For more information about the Kama`aina Rewards Program, visit our website at KamaainaRewards.com.
