"Oil Can" Symbol

I have something of a newbie question that I might have been able to answer myself had I kept the owner's handbook in the car!

I noticed on the way to work on the DIS on a couple of the screens there appears to be a small oil can symbol in a white box in the corner (specifically the screen with the outside temp, actual and average mpg and range all displayed at once). I took this to mean the oil level is low, although there has been no warning message or alarm as such. But having just checked the oil level it is full to the top...so I'm confused as to what this symbol is indicating. Can anyone advise?!

Car is a 2011 model.
