That's why oil absorbers, diapers etc. were invented - I've never yet seen a boat that didn't have SOME oil under the engine, even if it was only spilled when filling it.

You can tell at a glance if there's been a lot of oil down there or just some weeping, minor spillage etc.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
