SOURCE: Hi my 1999 audi a3 petrol stopped the oil light

Mr. WHISTON, for getting a clear understanding,if you received the oil light after the vehicle stopped it is obvious as the engine stop running and also with it you should have also the red battery light (charging light ). If so,and the reason is the fuel run out,after you put 5 liters in it which for me even is low quantity for the car,and tried to start it and will not kick,most common fault of the car is either the fuel pump stopped working due to low fuel and I believe is not the first time ( if I am right ) that you left it working with low fuel.If so the fuel pump on the attempt to feed your engine with the correct amount of needing fuel and due to low amount in tank was forced as working with sucking air and fuel at the same time,and slowly-slowly a friction was in progress inside the pump where it came to the limit so as to seized. To confirm if this is the fault,remove the back seat of your car and you will find the fuel pump location,on the right side and there is a black metallic cover with some screws by removing them you will find the top side of the pump with the plastic pipes and wiring connectors. Do not remove anything, Just ask somebody to turn the ignition on whilst you are standing by the pump side very close just to hear if is working sound like " BZZZ...... ) If so then the pump is ok ,if not then is better to call your mechanic to do the job for you as is a bit complicated to do it your self. If the pump is working then you have to check if the fuel filter some models do have it under the fuel tank or close to the engine under the body. Possible the fuel filter blogged. Try with what I advised you to do but be a very careful person as you are working with a flammable substance.

Why is my Audi A4 2010 petrol only doing about 300 miles before oil light comes on

2 questions.
1) Is the oil actually low on the dipstick?
If it is, you might have an oil leak, so you would need to look underneath and see. Also look for puddles when you park.
The most common reason for such consumption would be a burst oil pressure switch, or a leaking valve cover gasket.
Either of these will leak lots of oil.
The last possible reasons, which are really rare, would be engine parts defective,( like oil rings), or a leak in the brake booster which would suck oil from the crankcase into the brake booster.
2) If the oil is not leaking out, and the dipstick shows full, you will be needing a new oil pressure switch, or to have the electronics repaired.
God bless your efforts.

1994 audi80 petrol oil and water mixing.

How did you determine that there is petrol in the mix? Oil and water mixing will show grey on the oil dipstick. Clear indication that you have a blown headgasket. Get the cylinder head off, have it resurfaced(at an engineering shop), new headgasket, reassemble, and Bob's your uncle you're under way again.
