    Default 2.2 (Z22SE) oil consumption

    Any of you guys with a 2.2 petrol (Z22SE) engine ; what's your oil consumption like, mine seems to drink a bit of oil, (no leaks etc) seems to be within the 1ltr/1000 miles, but have to say most other cars I've had have always been fine, even my old Omega 2.2 (Z22XE) never drank any in between services.
    Cheers Pete

    Cheers guys , mines not really that serious at the moment,last changed back in Nov' last year, probably only done about 1500-2000 miles since then and level had dropped by about 2 notches on the dipstick which I think equates to roughly around 200-300 ml (got my math head on now!!), so I guess not too bad, still annoying as my other motors never lost oil unless there was a leak, however I have read about a TSB that relates to this engine and Vec C that stated the piston rings were not to spec' and if found to be using excess oil, that the rings were to be replaced under warranty at the time, makes you wonder what crap we're driving around in these days!!
    Cheers pete
