You get a shine on your well water and no mosquitos
Mhm, shiny water is my favorite
No joke this was an issue for my family for 4 years because of our neighbor. They had an in-ground oil-reserve for their house-oil. It had a leak and they were ordered to remove it. Instead of paying thousands for that, they simply filled it with concrete like idiots. The oil continued to pollute the surrounding ground, eventually affecting our own well-water supply.
4 years of battling later and we got an industrial level water treatment system in our basement, free of charge (not so free to the neighbor). Talking about a $12000-14000 water filter on top of fines because he didn’t want to spend an initial $5,000.
I’ll never forget having to boil water every fucking day, or showering and smelling the faint smell of oil. Disgusting.
Fucking clown of a neighbor.
Edit: it is a well established fact at this point that boiling water does not remove the oil. I was like 10. This was years ago. You’re adding nothing to the conversation by repeating the same info for the 27th time. Stop before you start, for gods sake.
Exactly this. My dad would do this all the time and i would constantly tell him it’s going to get in the water. His reply. “I’ll be dead before that happens”
Why not just syphon it back up - Renewable Energy!

My old Range Rover used to do this for me, one drip at a time
A popular car YouTuber has a converted VW bus that constantly leaks oil. He says “If it’s leaking, it has oil.”
I have contained my rage for as long as possible, but I shall unleash my fury upon you like the crashing of a thousand waves.
Begone vile man. Begone from me!
A starter car? This car is a finisher car! A transporter of gods! The golden god! I am untethered, and my rage knows no bounds!
My Denali does this! To fix it the transmission needs to come out. Thanks GMC engineers.
My ‘91 Land Rover defender is still changing its own oil at regular daily intervals
I live my life a quarter drip at a time.
It's just marking its territory.
This is actually a feature not a bug, you should worry when there isn't an oil stain where the thing has been parked for a few hours.
Seriously, any Landrover owner should be aware of this, it is in the manual, right behind the section dealing with refilling the Lucas electrical systems smoke reservoir.
Same with my old Cadillac DeVille. Northstar engine essentially puked oil constantly.
My Audi 1.8T would just convert all that inconvenient liquid oil to a handy compact sludge.
