    The oil came from the ground anyway, right? Full circle makes sense.

    Not in our neighborhood. It’s in Northern VA too, and the neighborhood is full of pluggers.
    Some people were overcrowding their the houses with renters who filled their front lawns with cars.
    Now we have a county ordinance requiring cars to be parked on pavement (street or driveways)
    And, it limits the percentage of front yard space allowed for driveways.
    Effective and it beats having to pay HOA dues.

    Sounds like something Jeff Foxworthy would have come up with.

    So you would trade contaminating the groundwater for a clean driveway?
    This does not put “pluggers” in a good light but rather paints them as somewhat ignorant and uncaring.

    Oil etc. washes off the driveway, either onto the lawn or the street. From the street it does to storm drains and sewers, and from there to rivers and the ocean.
    At least on the lawn it has a chance to partially decompose before it reaches the water table in a century or two.

    I remember when big sacks of fertilizer, pellets made of some petroleum by-products) were SOLD at gas stations! They were stacked lat the end of a row of pumps! It was good stuff, too. That doesn’t happen anymore. Something about Homeland Security.

    NO…a Plugger would merely put a drain pan under the vehicle, so as not to harm the grass, or pollute the soil!!!

    No, that’s what a flattened cardboard box is for. Plus, when it gets saturated, it works great for starting a fire.

    Ok, I know I will be criticized for this comment…

    I have a large piece of cardboard I use when i go places where I know the people. Otherwise, I park over surplus roofing material. it absorbs the oil just fine.

    The pine straw on the driveway prevents the power steering fluid from staining it.

    It ought to; asphalt is a petroleum compound.

    My city will have the car towed, fine the car owner and send the property owner a hazmat cleanup bill of several thousand dollars.
