I spent more on motor oil than on gas...whoops

My oil light has been flickering on and off for the past week or so. I have a lot of electrical issues with my car, so I didn't really pay much attention to anything on my dashboard, except for when the arrow is on E. So tonight, after todays outing to the Casino (yeah, it is the 8th time in the past 3 1/2 weeks, so what?), I get gas.

And I finally decide to check the oil. And the dipstick was kinda...umm...dry. So, I walked back into the gas station, bought a quart of 5W-30. No change. Back into the gas station...mind you this is the gas station immediately outside of the Casino entrance so there are a lot of 'winners' present...I bought two more quarts thinking that this would take care of the issue. Not so much.

By the time the dipstick was back in the drivers seat, I purchased a total of 5 quarts, and put 4 of them into the car.

I never said I was smart.
