    Thumbs up OIL CONSUMPTION- Vectra C GSI

    High folks,

    Can anybody advise how much oil there GSI'S use for every 10'000 miles covered, currently mine has been using half a litre for 10'000 covered, does this concur with you guys?

    Regards,

    JCB

    That's well within the specs that VX allow - my old 2.2 would use that amount in under 1000....

    VX say allow upto a litre every 1000 miles.

    My mate was putting a litre a day in his 130k 1.8, think the engine was a bit fooked

    Mine used about 1/2 litre per 10K up to about 20,000 miles. It now has 40,000 miles on it and seems to be using virtually no oil between services (It gets dealer serviced every year, but I do an intermediate oil and filter change at 6 months). 1/2 litre per 10K miles sounds perfectly fine to me for a V6.

    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    I don't have to top up at all between services.
    In fairness, I rarely check the oil level as over the last 60,000 miles it hasn't used any.
