I just drove down a new road and some of the oil got on my car. What do I need to do?
This is another call that we get a lot. The best solution is prevention. Avoiding the road with oil on it is the best solution but when that is not possible, drive very slowly over the oil and you shouldn't have much problem getting oil on your vehicle. Our crew drives white pickup trucks and we rarely have a problem with oil. But if you DO end up with oil on your car, don't panic. Get a gallon of diesel fuel or a can of WD-40 and a rag and it should wipe right off. These products will not hurt the paint on your vehicle but after using them it would be a good idea to wash it and put on a good coat of wax. Please note that the county does not pay for cleaning of cars.
