    Default "Vince the oil alarm does not

    "Vince the oil alarm does not tell you that there is a "problem" with the oil system, it simply is there to let you know when you are getting low on oil.

    The sensors are crap and fail regularly - but the oil alarm does not mean that you need to start mixing your gas.

    If the oil system fails, you will never get an alarm...."
