    Hi,

    I have made the mistake of topping up my oil in the dark and overfilled it (the dipstick isn't the best even in daylight), i'm not sure exactly by how much but I think I have removed about 500ml with a syphon pump and it is now about 2/3 between the min and max, I drove about 100-150 miles before I realised and removed the extra.

    I was just wondering what damage I might have done?

    The car seems a little underpowered but i'm not sure if its me being paranoid

    any advice would be much appreciated

    Cheers

    I would not panic. The dealer regularly overfill our company cars by 500ml and the rest.

    I think it damages the cat, but it doesn't sound like you overfilled it by much anyway, if at all. If it's 2/3rds down the dipstick after removing half a litre, you must have only overfilled by a few 10's of mills.
