I generally don't wear gloves unless I'm working directly with gasoline or diesel fuel. I know it's good measure, but when reaching in tight spaces, I prefer to have complete "feel" of the fastener. Anyhow, glad to hear you guys are taking precaution. Used oil is, in fact, a carcinogen. BTW, one tip for when you're changing the main fuel filter underneath the car on gasoline models is to tie a shop rag around each wrist to prevent fuel from running down your arm and burning you in your underarm area, etc..
