loosing oil... wallet ache worry!

I noticed the oil level had dropped below the low level on the meter.... so I fed it a litre, no movement... gave it a bit more, so on and so on... no movement on the meter. Started to worry about a faulty sender unit or something, didn't want to overfill so called BM stealer and they told me I should get a control message to indicate low level... when 1litre off the low mark (only a low fuel marker in the control messages). Then a mechanic mate turned up so I told him the story, he looked around the engine, then noticed oil in the exhaust pipes

Couple of blips on the throttle confirmed its blowing oil out the exhaust... taking it to my BM Stealer on monday to get the bad news. Any suggestions towards it NOT being a serious engine/wallet breaking problem; much appreciated.
