hmm all the lease says with regard to parking is that the landlord isn't responsable if your stuff gets damaged or ripped off.

I thought that too, it sucks that it got on the asphalt, but it won't make it to the ground! How thick is the asphalt in those parkinglots, 4-6 inches? That and I thought I understood that asphalt is a petrolium based compound... eventually it should diffuse the oil throughout itself.

Such is the life of a hotrodder, eh? I need to focus on getting a proper place to work on and store my ride, this is getting rediculous.

well in his defense, theres a difference between an old car that drips a few drops here and there, and the pretty big puddle I left under my car. 4x6 feet or so man, it was a pretty good slick.
