Happened to me before on a works motor, but no oil showed on the dipstick. I was about 10 miles from the nearest garage and had no phone signal.. Drove like a blinking granny all the way to that petrol station to fill up on oil! No permenant damage though so you probably ok!
 
Cheers mate,

It was quite black but on a refill went back to its nice brown translucent colour again.

Im like a worried mother when it comes to my 90. I'm mocked for it by my mates. :p

Mach 10....

Surely you have to actually rev the engine over 2500rpm??? And not drive like a girl :D

Mach 2 at the most.

haha (rolls up sleeves) "Right....time to sl*g off his TD5 tuning" :p That Jag sounded VERY nice when you pulled away. I bet ones nice in a 90. Also, were you told off for not being hungry when you got back to your gfriends?

ps: Well I must have been giving it some gusto since sunday as the noise from the UJ's.(yet to be diagnosed) occurs on tickover now!! :D

:bigun2: <--- no idea why I added this....just looked cool when I came across it.
