    Default Oil level gsi .

    Does anyone know if the 3.2 v6 gsi burns oil more then the normal vectras. I've had it checked out by the AA. The VX dealer, who did a big service on it looked and found No leaks or any other problems . I top it up about 1ltr every 2-3 months is this ok. Does any other gsi drivers find this with their cars.

    Mine seems to be ok. But if you give them a bit of a belting they seem to use a bit more oil.

    Yeah thats about normal, mine uses about 1 litre every 3-4 months. As soon as the warning comes up on the screen i pop in a litre, keep a bottle on the cubby hole in the boot.

    If it helps mine is fully serviced and has no visible leaks either.

    I do go a bit mad at times. but it's all fine.i keep it in tip top condition, always do a weekly inspection on it. So anything wrong and it goes straight into the VX dealer. I know it can cost going to them but i know with my dealer their very very good. Oh did let the miss drive it. NEVER EVER AGAIN.LOL
