Gas and oil Cleanup Kit

Doing a Deso trip this fall and will be taking an outboard for the group. Rangers require a gas and oil cleanup kit and wondering what others have or recommend?

5 gallon bucket with lid, bag of clay cat litter and small shovel. Should keep them happy. Spread cat litter on spill, soak up oil or gas soaked cat litter and put in bucket, along with any oil and gas soaked soil under cat litter. Just make sure you collect oil or gas soaked earth is the idea. Oh ya, rags or paper towels readily available to wipe up gas or oil run off.

If you need to refill the running tank for the outboard from a gas can, be careful where you do that, as well.
It’s best not to transfer on your boat, because a spill will get all over your boat, and then straight into the river. Pick a surface where a spill can’t go to far, and you can clean it all up.
Some of these new “ anti static” gas cans they sell, are really bad about leaking everywhere, when you try to pour them, so pick any back up cans you bring, carefully, and/or use a funnel.

Don’t forget your fire extinguisher, and registration plus number plates, they will want to see those to.

Absorbent pads and a small (3'x3') tarp are great to put under your motor while refueling.

Another reason to go propane... at least four different manufacturers now. Plus no carb to fiddle with, and not particular about storage!

Does it require a transom cutout, or do you mount it to the top of the tombstone?

Transom cutout, is just perfect depth when mounted.
