One of my first jobs was working in a small 2 mechanic garage, we took care of the largest taxi company in Blackpool, sevicing and repairing the fleet.

I must have done thousands of oil changes there.

I have always serviced all cars I owned, must be another few hundred oil changes.

I serviced my laguna a couple of days ago, I have never, ever, before when changing the oil forgot to put the sump plug back in before replacing the oil !

Guess what I did this time, it cost me about 20 in lost oil !

I suppose I was lucky, at least I had not removed the drain pan from under the engine.

I had put about 4 litres of oil in and wondered why it was not showing on the dipstick.
