Whilst driving back from France my Flavia began dripping oil on my foot, coming from under the dash. The connection to the oil pressure gauge seems secure and the leak seems to come from the bottom of the speedo casing. Is it possible for the cable to draw up oil from its lower connection in the gearbox? Very strange.

Seems oil is travelling up the speedo cable owing to a worn seal at the gearbox end. Have ordered new cable, will report back.
