    CTT12 - engine oil usage

    Hi All,

    It has been a wee while since I have posted last but I need a little bit help. Not sure if I mentioned but since 5yrs I am back in my native Holland and bought 4.5 yrs ago a Cayenne Turbo 2012. It is my second CTT and never had any problems...and still I don't have any problems, but why posting?

    Last month I took my CTT12 to our house in Portugal as wifie refused to fly. It took us 3 days to get to the Western Algarve and another 3days to get back up (after a two week stay). Prior to going I asked Porsche Rotterdam to do a summer check and they found that one of my valve cover gaskets had a slight weep (very common I was told). They changed it and it is fine ever since (Porsche Rotterdam were very helpful and fixed it before driving off)

    OK, my question, before going to Portugal I added maybe 1ltr engine oil say every 3-4000km, I wasn't worried as this was a lot less them my CCT08 I had in the Middle East. Anyway, I since drove down to Portugal and back up and some more driving equating in an addition 8000km, guess what? it still shows 3 of the 4 green segments and haven't changed since the valve gaskets were changed 8000 km ago. I find it rather strange, I took 2x liters with me to Portugal thinking I had to add a little oil.

    Not sure if I need to be concerned, it has now 137k on the clock and drives great. Did anyone hear about problems with oil level sensors in E2's?

    Nothing about the oil sensor, but those engines are known to consume that amount of oil for that long a drive. My own Cayenne was eating at least a quart or more every year. 

    137k on the clock is almost the time to get a rebuild with wear and tear nearing the wear limit.

    Let the dealer check everything, just to be sure. Also look at how the oil looks alike, the color, the consistency. Maybe even an oil analysis could be useful at this age of the engine.

    Were you driving very gently on your way to Portugal and back? From my experience, the Cayenne Turbo only loves to eat oil when you floor the throttle.

    Also listen to Whoopsy, he is not wrong about the engine wear.

    RC,  I really didn't drive fast.. I had the family with me and a Skibox on top so 130-140kph tops (on average)

    Indeed I am aware with Whoopsy is saying however as this is my 4th Cayenne (second turbo) I have no worries about oil usage. I just find it strange that my oil level hasn't dropped after being back from Portugal having clocked an additional 8000 kilometers (maybe a good problem to have Smiley)

    Just calling Porsche Rotterdam.

    Quick update... my oil monitoring gauge lost another green bar last week after almost 9000km of not filling her up. Anyway I added 600ml and she is up to 3/4 oil level again. Pretty impressed, Porsche Rotterdam confirmed that there was nothing wrong with the electronic oil gauge. wink

    Pretty different oil consumption from my CTT08 which used almost a liter every 1000kms ...... (almost straight away from new)
