    Some tanker driver probably dumped some "heel"or leftover chemical in the parking lot.
    Doing that can save hundreds of dollars at a tank wash when the tank wash doesn't have to dispose of it.

    ^^^^ This. Former asphalt hauler here; EXACTLY what I was thinking. Granted, 6122 and 3257 are non Haz, just Hot, .... (they'd thank me for leaving heel, haha) but some of that CAUSTIC stuff.... YEP. IDIOTS. Dang.

    Couldn't agree more.
