Oil foibles

Okay, this is not my week. I picked up a business associate for a 100-mile trip to Eugene for some meetings this morning. I allowed and extra 1/2 hour in our schedule for the trip. Well, I get about 15 miles down the freeway and notice a thin veil of smoke behind the car. WTF?! I pull over with things clicking into place in my mind. I had added 1/2 liter of oil the night before after changing over the weekend, and yes, you guessed it, forgot to put the cap back on! Giant mess in the engine bay. I stufffed a rag in it and got back home to add some oil and do a quick clean up. Cap was setting on a shelf in the garage. We were only 5 minutes late to the meeting in the end.

But, this is going to be all over my office!
