Old Jeep, new housing development; any creative driveway / street protection ideas?
I moved into my nice new house in August, and luckily nobody from the development has approached me, yet, about the accumulating oil slick in the street. Yes, I need to fix several small (and some not so small) leaks, as I really do care about the environment, and the Jeep. I've tried putting some sand down to tide me over till spring when I can get busy on the repairs, but it washes away pretty easily, and only covers the spots. They're still accumulating quite well on the asphalt. Unfortunately, parking on the grass is not an option here, and for the first time in 19 years of marriage, my wife will soon be parking her minivan in the garage. The leaks are too wide spread to simply park over an oil pan, and I wouldn't want to leave something like that in the street while I'm at work.
I'm considering some sort of disposable chemical absorbent mat, but I figured someone out here in the SWB forum might have a more creative solution.
