Even if I saw double, I still wouldn't reach what Americans take for a 'baseline 8 cylinder engine', as I'm running on a 1.4L I4

By that logic, I have a 17.1L V28 with a supercharger and a turbo.

I would also point out that even if you follow the GM authorized procedure for changing the oil to the letter, you can still cause this condition to happen. So it's not just "idiots doing it wrong" it is actually "idiots designing it with no regards to human factors."

I wonder why it didn't show up before now with the eurocruze.
