    A tad harsh there, but in fairness, this is a leek, or five of them ....

    When discussing a leak, there are a number of different ones;
    a puddle or a pool of liquid where there shouldn't be one,
    some information which is supposed to be secret but ended up on t'interweb
    a gas or other vapour escaping from where it shouldn't escape.
    This is also a Leak ....

    Nice pictures Brian but I'm assuming the OP is referring to what is under the vehicle rather than that which is carried, by the farming community, in the back ;)

    The problem with leaks is until you have determined where it is coming from it is nearly impossible to diagnose as hot oil will spread everywhere.
