    Another 1k miles and another quart of oil...

    Almost 8k miles in 6 months and it's been 8 qts of add on oil. No problem though, dealer said it's "normal". Just think, it's "normal" to "add" 40 qts of oil in 3 years of driving avg annual miles. Guess we better stock up now, eh?

    Re: Another 1k miles and another quart of oil...

    Thats not right!

    Perhaps you should think of it as a perpetual oil change

    Re: Another 1k miles and another quart of oil...

    wow how much is the cost for a quart of oil?

    it's only $5/qt. it's not the cost but the PIA of having to go get the special weight synthetic oil and the principal of having to put it in once a month on a new $100k truck.

    Re: Another 1k miles and another quart of oil...

    I seem to be doing about a quart every fifteen hundred miles, so in the same ballpark.....

    Re: Another 1k miles and another quart of oil...

    for me its about every 2500 kms

    Re: Another 1k miles and another quart of oil...

    ben,

    I've got you beat, my 996TT cab has been doing about 1.25 quarts every 300 - 400 miles. I'm at 14K miles right now, Porsche says its normal.

    ugh!!!

    Re: Another 1k miles and another quart of oil...

    Yeah me too . I've now got about 14k and last month I was a quart low. This really caught me off guard , as I thought the oil consumption would have ceased by now. ? Go figure.
    Are there any ideas as to when or at what mileage( approx) this engine should be " broken in", or is this oil consumption to be expected as a characteristic of these engines.
