  • Oil drips? Not on my new gravel you won't!

    Ok folks, here's what's happening. My beach house may be rented this summer so I think I want to bring it to our main house so I can drive it. Because it leaks, she doesn't want it in the driveway, and when I said I'd park it on the outside space which she just had covered with new rock, I'd swear she said something like "we are not amused," or something similar. So what I need now is some kind of durable material which can be secured to the ground underneath. And please don't ask me to have the leak fixed as it's that wonderful rear seal which I've had replaced oh-so--many-damn times! Suggestions, please, O learned Stude-buddies.

    Park it in a different place on grass every couple of days.... she can't see the drip there, and soon there'll be less to mow ! Win, win !!!

      A Pig mat (that's the brand name) on a shallow metal pan, like a throw away cookie sheet, would absorb the oil drips and is easy to properly dispose of.

        Buy direct from the manufacturer, or through any number of retailers.

          Wow!! those pig mats cost a lot of pork. I use a piece of astro turf under mine and it seems to work pretty good for a lot less money.

            Advance auto sells large drip pans. They are about 3X4.

              I would not know where to buy such a thing, since none of my Studies leak oil.

                  If you can jump over the puddle it isn't leaking. I second the 3' x 4' pan. My wife bought me one for each car. You do have to empty them occasionally.

                    We use Pigmat at work for heavy equipment. Our mining company operates on BLM property, so we are very careful about oil spills. For either the pan, or the pigmat, you will have to pin it down with something to keep it from blowing away. Good to hear that your car will be close to home for the summer.
