“Splash Bib” Keeps Gas Off Your Vehicle
“I made a pattern and cut out part of an old truck tire tube, then tried it out on my friends’ cars. They loved them. “A local business called Car World made about 1,000 bibs for me, in two different sizes, and I gave most of them away to local car dealers who gave them to customers. We even printed the dealer’s name on the bib. But for various reasons the marketing effort soon fizzled out, and no more bibs were ever made. Now I only have a couple left.” He says the bib works on vehicles with locking gas caps, and on vehicles without a gas cap as you can just stretch the bib over the filler tube. Another advantage is the bib protects the vehicle if you accidentally bang a gas pump nozzle against the car. “Over the years I’ve used it on my lawn tractor, 4-wheeler, and snowmobile. It’s really handy when I have to use a 5-gal. gas can, because it’s hard to keep a big can like that steady as you pour.” Heilman is looking for a manufacturer. “I think the Gas Splash could be sold for under $5,” he says.
