All conductive parts in the whisper should be connected by bonding/earthing straps / cables.

Whilst fueling it is important that the aluminium tank is grounded. This is achieved by grounding the engine via the exhaust pipe. Because the engine is electrically connected to the tank it too is grounded.

Make sure that these grounding straps / cables are in place
