Car check time!

Finally got round to the February car check - I recorded the mileage last weekend (918.8 miles - new record!), but didn't get round to actually doing any maintenance on the car.

Tyre pressures were all within 0.05 bar so I left the compressor in the box, and instead turned to the engine. By now the oil level was down to 1/4 or thereabouts so I fed it 500ml of Bowser oil (psst, Nintendo, you're missing a perfectly good branding opportunity here!) which seems to have taken it to full on the dipstick.
