I have nearly 5000 miles on my A4 now and it is still appears to be using
oil at a rate of around 1 quart per 2500 miles. Audi consider this normal
however I have never before owned a car with such a thirst for oil and am
struggling to come to terms with it.
I have read many articles about how to best run in an engine to achieve the
best piston ring sealing. In my case, I have more or less followed what it
says in the book and certainly have not 'babied' the car. My daily journeys
are urban with a good mix of driving conditions.
I'm interested to hear from anyone whom has has a similar experience - does
the oil usage eventually stop? Incedentally my car has the Castrol SLX
longlife oil in from new - maybe why it seems to be taking it's time bedding
Your thoughts are appreciated.
