Fstbttms will become famous soon enough
It's all about surface area when it comes to evaproration. A 55-gallon drum of oil with one end open to the air has very little surface area. But pour that drum out into a marina and it has lots.

I have been a mechanic for over 30 years. The only way I have ever known to get rid of waste oil is to clean it up and dispose of it properly.
The residue from fuel/oil may eventually break down smaller or end up on shore somewhere but even if you can no longer see it,it is still there.

Seems a lot of our environmental problems come from people thinking they have caused no harm because nobody can see what they have done.

Re: Ten Tips for Clean and Green Boating

I invest lots of time on my uncle's motor boat. We use oil only absorbing shields to fresh up the unpleasant oil that builds up under the energy guiding and that very sometimes leaking from the 2-stroke outboard, i didn't think this will sort it out.
