Maintenance, maintenance, maintenance.
The only stories I hear about VRO reliability are oil pump failures on ill-maintained engines; and they're just that -- stories. I can't comment about cause, but when the pump goes and you don't listen to the warning buzzer, your engine goes.
So, you have 2 choices:
o Use regular maintenence to keep the oil injection system in good shape, including replacing the pump, and pay attention to the buzzer or,
In either case, tell whomever is worrying you to give you some facts and data about failures -- it's ignorance that breeds rumors that cause people to worry unnecessarily.
