I have just realised that a made a small error here in the story.  I should have
said "2.5 litres" of oil and not "3.5 litres".  A Type3 sump cannot hold that much
oil.  I think I made this mistake because I did an oil change on my Type4
yesterday afternoon (Saturday 18 August) shortly before writing and E-mailing that
story.  I think I must have had 3.5 litres on the brain because that is the amount
of oil needed for a Type4 engine at oil and filter change time.

Nevertheless, that typo shouldn't detract from the silly lesson to be learned.
