spill containment ideas (roll over)

Lets see/share some ideas to help prevent/clean up fluid spills on the trail, and our rigs.

Motor oil
trans. (manual and auto)
t-case
axles
power steering fluid
antifreeze
brake fluid, though it shouldn't leak
fuel
and any others that a box of adult diapers wont help


Higher points for prevention/containment tricks, but ya still get points for clean up tricks.

Lets see em.............

tip over valves, like this one http://www.spidertrax.com/Tip-Over-Valve

using fuel filters on gear oil vent lines will slow them to a trickle, if not stop it all together. Not so helpful on atf, or obviously fuel.

cheap but effective trick on pirate .............http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?p=2712471

P.I.G. oil mats, wipes, and tubes. We have these at work, they.......well, ......work. Some will "suck" oils out of water and not soak up the water, I dont claim to understand how, but have seen it........pretty cool. http://www.amazon.com/New-Pig-Univer.../dp/B004I665XS

pics are a plus, but any ideas that help keep it clean are great.
