You asphalt fence post paint is really not much better than used motor oil. Number one it is made from an industrial waste called coaltar. If you go to the asphalt fence paint and read the Tech Data Sheet It says "Harmful if you breath vapors and if it comes in contact with eyes or skin". It also contains chemicals known to cause cancer and birth defects. So I would say its no better than used motor oil.

the one that 'once cool' it pretty much inert.. or the one that does all that other bad stuff.

I did my engineering thesis on water systems designs... Asphalt isn't a problem.. used oil is..
