    And how many miles does that equate to?

    For reference, a Vauxhall engine can consume 1 litre of oil per 1000 miles before its considered to be knackered.

    Also for reference my direct hasn't burned a drop in over 3000 miles. Not to say it's broken though. How many miles has yours done?

    About the same mileage as mine then, but mine is a 2006 55 plate. All cars differ, i dont think that is a majorly excessive amount of consumption. Ive been on the corsa forums as my girlfriends 1.2 is drinking oil faster than petrol and they say the 1.2 on average decks a litre every 800-1000 miles.

    perhaps try a thicker oil?

    Works out at 1400 miles per litre of oil then (7000 miles divided by 5 litres of oil)

    Which is within Vauxhall acceptable limits.
