Emptied the oil that I pulled out of this after the first flush from the drain tray today. A thin bottom layer was bright green.

Last time I took it for a coolant-less drive, though, there was almost no water vapour coming out of the filler cap hole. About what you'd expect from normal blow-by.

And today she became empty-dirty-oil-bottle storage, passenger foot well and passenger seat are chocka with dirty (on the inside) oil bottles ready for disposal after a few hours condensing them into 20l bottles.

130 litres of waste oil now stored much more efficiently, and the garage got a minor clean up in a seldom-accessed location as a result. Win.

15x6.5 ET34 4x100 PCD, hopefully the offset works for this thing. I think it will. I didn't buy totally blind :-)

They look like this on the front:
