I don't know why you signed up with "talkabout network" to access this public usenet newsgroup (alt.autos.citroen). Assuming that your email address really is virgin.net [1] that means that your ISP is probably Virginmedia.com (formerly NTL, mostly) and they provide a proper news-server for their customers; you can read about it by going to <http://www.virginmedia.com/customers/ and clicking on 'Newsgroups' in the menu on the left.
Once set up, newsgroups are much easier to read and post to using a real news-server than going via a web site that pretends to be a private web forum.
You can even read and post to this newsgroup using Google Groups, who are at least less coy about admitting that they are exploiting usenet. See <http://groups.google.com/group/alt.autos.citroen/topics .
As for your vanishing oil, perhaps you should get a mechanic to take a look at the engine and the dipstick - if it isn't going up in smoke from the exhaust pipe, it isn't impossible that you aren't pushing the dipstick fully 'home', or that it is broken short or the wrong one for your car (whatever that might be).
Presumably you are making sure that the car is on level ground when you check the oil ...
[1] Everybody can see that, apart from those (very very few) using the talkabout web site to read this group; the [EMAIL PROTECTED] you can see counts for precisely nothing.

You may need to remove the spurious
%3E.

They are certainly not there on a pure Usenet feed, looks like the commercial c*nts who run 'talkbout' don't want people to stray to were they are leaching from...

More likely incompetent coding of the web page.
