    No mate thats fine, thats the tolerance given for the Z22SE. If it starts to burn more than that its the rings.

    My 2003 Vectra 2.2 DTi SRi with 89k on the clock uses NO oil at all between services. Not a single drop

    Some engines use oil, others don't. No two engines are alike.

    My previous 2.2 petrol engine in my 53 reg Elegance used approx a litre of oil every 2,000 to 2,500 miles. Engine had only done 36,000 miles when I pranged it.

    My current 2.2 petrol engine in my 06 reg Elite doesn't use any oil at all. Engine has done just under 60,000 miles.

    In short, my current car has nearly twice the mileage of my previous one, yet uses no oil.
