    yes mate, and leave it running, that way any moisture will be expeled through hole

    my wife has a 1.2 corsa, suffers from same, because she only travels about 1/4 mile to work

    doesnt get enough time to get hot

    = a great way to dispurse oil all over the engine bay. The easiest way to get rid of the condensation is to take it for a good run to get the oil nice and hot, and preferably give it an Italian tune at the same time.
