Did possibly the sillyest car related thing since i've been driving yesterday.

I was checking the car out (tyre pressures, wheel bearings etc) and topped the oil up. I then had a call from my brother because I'd forgot to pick him up from college so I chucked the bonnet down and went to fetch him.

3 miles later I thought "the car infront is smoking a bit I can't see **** all" when I noticed the smoke coming into the cabin. I pulled over, popped the bonnet and guess what I saw when opened it.

Silly twat here had forgot to put the oil cap back on so my engine bay now has a lovely coating of 10w40 :o At least it hadn't fell out it was still on top of the rocker cover.
