    Engines_LowOilQuantityInverseVideo=1   (quarts or % ??)


(But where do they store the actual value?) 


4. But just now the OIL QTY % of engine 2 reads '0' without any effect: No warning, engine running smoothly in idle thrust... 


5. Now after another couple of minutes indicating '0' the display changes to inverse video and the 'LO' indication. 

Seems rather late, does it not? 


6. (Edited 10:05z) One hour later the engine still doesn't show any failures... 


7. (Edited 10:20z) Now the OIL QTY is -1%. Well, ...
