Low oil PRESSURE does not necessarily mean that the oil level is low. The oil pump maintains pressure to the bearings. When the bearings get worn, the oil leaks around the bearings and the pressure drops. You can try a "Thicker" oil to see if that keeps the oil from leaking out the sides of the bearings as quickly. If you're using a 10-W-30 oil now, try a 15-W-50. Whatever oil you're using, try oil with the next higher number an see if that keeps the light from turning on.

to be honest i would take it to a garage. if you run an engine with low oil you could risk siezure & posibly writing it off :(
