Hi, Stuart, I hope you are doing well. I'm sorry to hear you've found your oil level to be overfilled and understand exactly how frustrating this can be when recently serviced. Unfortunately, I would recommend that the oil level is corrected before you go on your trip. Having an oil level that is too high can be as bad as having an oil level that's too low and can lead to engine damage
