The eBay search box on Oldgas.com has not been working correctly this week. I am working on a new eBay search function to get it going again.

At the bottom of this page, there is an eBay banner with clickable auction links. Please click on the gray magnifying glass icon on the lower left to search on eBay. An eBay search form appears when you click on that icon.

Your support by using the search box and the banner auction links is what pays the bills to keep Oldgas.com running. Copy/paste auction numbers or type search keywords in the box. Thanks!

We had to change the way we access an eBay search box to get one that would work. Please search on eBay for your items using our search box. That helps to pay the bills that keep Oldgas.com going.

Am eBay search box is available on any forum page by scrolling to the bottom of the page. Click on the little magnifying glass icon on the lower left of the eBay banner there. A search box will pop-up as shown in the images below.

How this works:

I don't have the ebay banner nor magnifying glass at the bottom of my page, It hasn't been there for a long time.

I found if you run an ad blocker those features will not be there.

Look for a blue box with a black arrow near the bottom of this page. An "eBay Looking for Petroliana" ad should appear just below it. If it doesn't, it is most likely that you are running an ad blocker or viewing Oldgas.com via our secure server.

It is each viewer's option to view without ads, but when income from those ads fall below the operating expenses, it jeopardizes the future of Oldgas.com.
