    If you have the light coming on when you are going around a turn, check the oil level NOW. Don’t even turn the engine on without checking it.

    You are low on oil.
    Check it immediately.

    And have you checked engine oil level again, after driving 250 miles? If not it would be good to do so, so that you can understand the extent to which the engine is consuming oil.

    You do not want to wait for warning lights to appear, before you decide to check the engine oil level. If you continue to allow the engine oil level to decline so much in the future, get ready to buy a new vehicle or pay to have a replacement engine installed.
