1 gallon if it's in or near a wetland and 2 gallons otherwise.

1 gallon of gasoline can contaminate something like 100,000 gallons of water.. and that's an under estimate on my part. So they are pretty careful about that kind of stuff.

Edit: and it all varies state to state, but usually is more strict.

I'm not a VW guy, but I agree with the benefits of old cars. I love doing my own work on my 74 Jeep, and I'm looking for an old pickup too. No more opening the hood and seeing plastic and wires.

I can't wait until I have my own house. Seal the garage floor, and put in a recessed fluid catch. Then I just have to deal with taking in my fluids. In the meantime, I have to settle for lots of cardboard and tarps when working on the car.

Well, here's how the rest of my day went.

Decided to do some roof and attic work. While in the attic hopping from rafter to rafter I slipped and put my left leg through the living room ceiling. Sweet.

Left hip all bruised up... limping to the fridge and back for pain relief... errr... beer.

Other than that, nothing a little drywall, spackle, texture and paint won't fix.

*mumbles*Damn... accidents*grumbles*

Pics of the living room ceiling hole... now just imagine my leg sticking through there to my hip. :lol: (I can laugh about it now... a few beers later).




EDIT: Spelling

Did that turn into a one or two beer hole?

Dad did the same thing at our house when I was about 6. Wierdest thing I has seen up to that point.

CRASH!

Loud cursing...

Dad's leg sprouting from the ceiling.

It completely blew my mind. I'm still not recovered. There was only one place in our 26x18 living room that you could possibly damage stuff by dropping a hunk of ceiling on it, and dad found the spot. Was there anything under your 2 beer hole?
