Stupid question but was the oil filler cap properly seated?
I got one tang of the filler cap outside the bayonet fitting on my first 230 once, drove the car 50 miles before I discovered the cloud of oil smoke and smell emanating from up front. ( It was very dark! )
Opened the bonnet to find everything coated in oil, it had blown out everywhere!
