I need to qualify my "does not leak oil" response.
It doesn't leak as long as you don't consider blue smoke out the tailpipe "leaking"

My wife's doesn't, not a single drop. Was last done up 7 years ago now, not needed to look at Oil leaks on it in all that time.

And YES, it does have oil in it!

I have owned one that didn't leak, it was actually a Mini. The engine was as it came from the factory so had its original seals and gaskets in place. It was quite remarkable.

My Moke drips a fair bit, but the old Traveller absolutely haemorrhages the stuff - and it doesn't even run!
