    Default Engine Oil Consumption

    Does Anyone Know If The Book Figure Of O.6 Litre/1000km Or 1.06 Pints/621.4 Miles Is Correct. My Car Has Done 6000 Miles, Which Makes It 6.36 Pints/6000 Miles. This Seems A Very High Figure To Someone Who Has Never Topped Between Services On Any Car He Has Owned.

    It Has Had At Least 1 Litre So Far And Has Lost A Further 3.5 Litres Since.

    Blimey looking at the number of threads you have opened on this car i guess you're not that happy with it......

    With only 6000 miles on the clock the engine will use a drop but they normally get better with a few more miles done - engine still tight

    Vauxhalls are renowned for using a drop(take a look at some of the 2.2 threads)

    had to top mine up when I first got it (over a year ago) but has used nothing since. Had service & oil change in May and again has used nothing since.

    I think the reason i had to top it up when I first got it was because the dealer did an oil change & didnt top it up after running it to fill filter etc.

    new engines use oil as part of the bedding in procedure..so it's only to be expected that it'll use oil...once it gets 10-15k on the clock it shouldn't use much oil for the rest of it's service life..in fact , no engine doesn't use oil..they all do..it's just the amount that varies..
