    Default Oil Warning - How far can I go?



    This came on on the way to work. I've got 70 miles to get home. I've got some oil at home. Do I need to buy more or will I get home ok without causing any damage?

    Check the level before driving anywhere.

    I wouldn't have gone anywhere, it seems you are burning some oil?

    The Renaults don't seem to have dip sticks anymore just a check when you start the engine.

    If it only took just over a litre the light obviously comes on quite early then.
