What a difference a quart makes!
What a difference a quart of oil makes. I thought I was only down half a quart, not more than one. When i got home the other night I put a quart in and lo and behold, the light went out. Pressure actually went up closer to the 2 bar during idle. I know I'm burning oil through the valves, especially during freeway runs.
Thanks again for setting me straight about the dipstick. I'll keep a close eye on my level now that I know I don't have room to play.
