black gold, the pelican grief

well, if it is real clean, and you are sure it is engine oil, it can only be the crank pulley(which you had a problem with), or a bal shaft. i was such a chicken that i have not yet put the front cover on, so i could observe problems. i have a small leak, like 3 drops a day after shut off, which i am sure is the lower bal shaft seal. ( you know about the directionality of the seals on the shafts, the lower one has the left handed or universal direction seal?) i suggest taking off the front cover, wiping it down with a rag, let it run a few min, and see whats up with the dripping down.

could it be power steer fluid? hope,hope!

justt got back from colorado, 85 plus most of the time, and 31 mpg with the lights off.

can you send a pix of where the drops are at, like a clean piece of cardboard under the parked car, with the relative position of the front bumper in the view? well lit?
