you spot liquid dripping from the engine bay and forming a puddle on the ground.

and then you realise it's water from the air-conditioning condenser

The other day I was parked up on the side of the road answering an email, when a bloke came running up to me "hey mister, your car is leaking fluid!" I didn't even think twice "no it's ok, it's just condensed water from the aircon" well at least I hope it was....got me worried now!

Unfortunately, the liquid dripping from my engine bay was engine oil - the flexible pipe to the oil cooler decided to burst just as I got home. XKR now in the hospital having its veins repaired, hoping running dryish for a few seconds hasn't broken anything else.

Yes, this happens to me also!

In Russia there was one type of car from past, I think old Volga, who was always making leak of oil.
Cause was oil system for parts of suspension, for these driver must push button on floor at regular times to make some oil go around.
My father said to me, always possible see where this type was parked LOL

Yes all the time - I'm always worried that I've got so used to assuming it's just condensation that one day it won't be, and I won't realise until something goes bang...!
