I did take a detour across 84 and down the Taconic which wasn't half bad.

The SDL continues to leak oil out the turbo seals (I believe) and now the cabin and the trunk have taken on the aroma of Rotella synthetic.

I can't figure out how the cabin manages to get the oil smell, but, I suspect that an exhaust leak is probably to blame.
Give the engine bay area and the engine a good cleaning to get all of the oil out of there, the oil smell should go away after that.
