Needless to say, lesson learned - the oil light activated after a 2 hour drive into no man's land. The nearest dealer is 42 miles away but, unfortunately, is closed on Sundays. The owner's manual indicates that I have about 120 miles or so but I don't want to push it. I've tried the obvious candidates - random gas stations, Autozone, etc. but unfortunately no luck (the Autozone guy literally asked, "What is that even for?" haha).
Any suggestions? I may just have to wait it out until Monday morning to head to the dealership.
Roadside assistance, btw, was not helpful.
bmw dealer was the only place i could find it. when i go on long trip a top off and take a liter with me. my dealer did say you can use an alternate just in case you are in exactly what u are in. 10w 50 i think but ask your dealer
