I"m wanting to know how much oil consumption is too much?
Is it what the factory would lead one to believe?
I find it hard to believe, and disgusted that I'm expected to believe
that 1 quart per 1000 miles is the acceptable limit.
My 05 Accord, 4 cyl, 5 spd manual, 40 mile commute each way uses far
less, but still uses some.
I'm in a debate wether I should just add oil and not indicate to the
dealer that it consumes oil, so I can trade it in, and say hell with
it. They never told me. I won't tell them. OR find out more about
this oil consumption test, and what it entails. And more importantly
what they'll do about it, if it doesnt meet the 'excess of 1
I have never missed a scheduled appointment. I keep my tires
inflated. I do run it at 70-75 mph for a good part of my commute.
I warm it up well, and I get 28 - 31 mpg tank to tank.
I'd say that I'm using 1/2 a dipstick mark in 3200 miles.
22,400 miles on the car, and the consumption has seemed the same,
throughout, since new..
