Well, as one lister recently ran his rear axle dry ...
I'd say a level check and top-up is justified every 10000 miles. If you've got
the 17mm Allen driver in your hand, you might just as well drain and refill.
Very important to have the car level - especially with a TORSEN. Too much oil
is _very_ bad - it damages the seals, which then let the rest out ...
Notable and famous tip - check you can get the filler out _before_ you open the
