My wife bought me a bottle of something called 'New Skin'. It is nothing but an antiseptic super glue and takes about 2 weeks to wear off - but it does stop that sticky red stuff from leaking all over and making a mess out of your clothes and whatever you are working on.

haha that's funny. I use a super glue for model airplanes and it does just what you said. Balsa dust works pretty good for soaking it up too.
I didn't know about the diesel fuel. I know we used to pour a gallon in the 25 gallon sump of the parts washer. Eased the sting of fresh solvent. I keep a little in the back of the truck so Ill give it a try.....probably today, haha as I'm going to service the truck for winter.
