Hi, as an update for those who will be reading this in the future....

I elected to change the oil level sensor and gasket. It was the source of my "major" leak. It solved the problem. No more leaks! I also confirm, most of the oil got dumped out as part of the swap. I think about 1 bottle of oil remained, so I was able to save a bit on that.
