Quick Tip: Dealing with hazardous spills


The Hazard

Dripping fuel or other vehicle fluids can present a hazard to other motorists and could result in liability for the spill. More than half of spills or leaks involve the diesel fuel from either a puncture in the truck’s fuel tank or a leak in the fuel crossover lines.

A Quick Solution

One quick and effective way to contain leaks is by putting an inflatable kiddie pool under the leaking truck. This will keep the leak from spreading or soaking into the ground or roadway.

Check the label to determine the area of the pool itself. Sizes can range from 37 inches for a small pool, up to over 80 inches. An inflatable kiddie pool will not take up much storage space in a truck.
