In light of this thread, I shall report that nearly 1.5 months later and over 1.5k miles later, my orange sealant work on my drain tube isn't leaking a drop!

Pic:



(Note this pic is from when I did it, it has road-dirt on it now, but no oil seepage at all, its holding up excellently)

Sweet and such a good color for this time of year.

I wonder if a quick squirt of the "miracle fix-all" leakender 2000 would do it?
