I dont think anyone took the time to fill the hole with gravel first before dumping the oil in! I'm still not convinced this is really all that horrible to do.

For those on here who have never seen or experienced using post hole diggers here is a youtube clip. This is about the best one I could find.

On our farm, used motor oil was applied to shiny plow shares to prevent rust. We also poured it on the dirt lanes to control dust. Many uses that to this day, I see no harm in? Paul www.severngaspumps.com

We also used to pour a little bit of oil on areas of standing water in the spring and summer. It does a nice job of smothering mosquito larvae and reducing mosquito population. grin

We also used grease to protect the plow shares.

When I moved into my first houseback in the 70's, I dug a hole behind the garage and filled it with oil. I forgot about it for awhile The neighbors daughter saw me leaving one day and told me that when it had rained, the oil was displaced in the hole and flowed downhill. It went straight to her mothers garden. Luckily, her mother didn't hold a grudge. Over time, we all became good friends and I was treated like one of the family.

On the farm dad would have me pour the used motor oil over the tops of the fence posts. That was over 50 years ago and some of those posts are still solid in the ground.
