Doing lots of short trips can also cause the oil level to read low.Short trips allow water/moister in the oil causing a false reading.
Thanks dack. Can always count on you buddy. A lot of my trips are short as I don't live far from work at all so ill just keep a close eye on it. Btw I'm planning to go to the welt 4.0 meet. I want a sticker but don't have a German bank acct to transfer the payment with as I'm in Spain Ora German address to have it sent to. Sense you know this guy any special way I can get payment to him and get one sent. Maybe through you or something.
