I had a Scirroco once that was factory-issued with the wrong oil dipstick. It
was thus overfilled at the first service. I drove it from Germany to France
without problems, but had to rev high to get past a tractor in France.
One of the pistons must have slapped down into washing oil - the car laid a
"smoke egg" about thirty metres in diameter. It was a beautiful sunny day, and
I watched this sphere of smoke roll down the valley. No lasting damage.
