    Oil light comes on when there is a loss of oil pressure. not because it is just low on oil but because there is hardly any oil in it. if the level is still between the marks on the dipstick, then that shouldn't be low enough to lose oil pressure. the switch that tells the computer that you have low oil pressure goes bad very often so its possible its just the switch but if you say you're losing oil then that's also a problem. check the bottom of the bilge see if there is oil in there. best way to verify your oil pressure would be to hook a gauge up and drive around while watching the gauge

    I've seen oil pressure sensors just mess up for no reason also. Not saying that's your issue but they've been known to just crap out.

    I was out today and I put in about a 1/4 of a liter and she was great. Read the manual and it says that she will use abet of oil and to keep checking it and add when needed. There is no oil in the hull so my not been able to sleep is over. Thanks again guys.
