Ok, had an "oh sh*t" moment recently:
There is a fuel filter between carburettor and fuel tank.
For purpose of cleaning, it can be opened.
During a recent ride to a train station, it split open and spilled fuel all over the engine.
Not only is this rather bad for fuel economy, but I could also have ended up in a fireball.
I'm glad it just ended up cleaning my engine...
