Here in Qld, it is 41 kmh over the posted limit, and it's a charge of Dangerous Driving, a court appearance, big fine, and you ain't drivin for 6 months....

...does the pressure stay high while driving and then just suddenly drops or are you saying the pressure is high during start up at idle and after a 100km driver the pressure now drops at idle?

When i started driving it after sitting for a month pressure was surprisingly good, but ~100km later it back to how it was.
When i start it pressure rises, driving is fine but when i come to a stop mainly in D (500rpm~) pressure drops way down most times beeping. (sometimes does it in N too)

I have no recommendation on oil, but I'm having a similar issue with my EL.
Mechanical pressure gauge will be first port of call.



As for the other item... here's some gentle reading. (I suggest you buy a push bike, or take up walking)

http://www.camerassavelives.vic.gov.au/ ... ies/fines/

In case you can't be bothered reading, here's the important bit of info from that link above....
If you exceed the posted speed limit by 45 km/h or more it results in a $704 fine, 8 demerit points, and automatic 12 month loss of license.
