Just realised Ive been driving the car for a week without the engine oil cap on!
Back in the day you would get spurted with oil on some twin cam cars so
expected a hell of a mess but hardly anything and found the cap

Wife says Im going senile...

Ditto.

I did read about a journalist doing the same in a long-termer a few years ago. He lost the cap, and had to order and collect a new one from a dealer, which necessitated two trips as you had to pay for it in person when ordering and not on collection. So every cloud has a silver lining. He was a younger chap too . . .

2007 350Z (my second Zed) - When you give up driving, you’re not going to look back wistfully on the car you owned with the nicest dashboard top or speaker grilles. You’re going to remember a car for its excitement and how it made you feel.
2011 Yaris 1.33 (my third Yaris) - With an extra 30cc and an extra gear it's become the S-Class of small cars.  Far less pretentious though.

That was a lucky save mate.  Easily done, especially when you're in a hurry or get distracted.

You really had a lot of luck :D

 

I also forgot some years ago the engine oil cap from my VW Multivan. I noticed it later than you, maybe 4 or 5 weeks, and the complete engine compartment was spilled with oil. What a mess :cursing: . I tried to clean it as good as I could, but the oil got sticked especially on the rubber tubes and plastic parts so there's still an oily and greasy coating on them :(
