This is 'normal' according to Audi dealers. My 2.8 A4 uses a litre per 2000
miles and I have had this checked and is ok. Yours may reduce as the engine
gets older. It is expensive though as the oil is Castrol SLX Longlife 2
which at the dealers costs about 12ukp. I get mine from Ebay and save a fair
amount. I wonder if oil consumption reduces with the normal regime as
opposed to the longlife changes.
Hope this Helps
My 2.4 has 20,000 miles now and is still using approximately a litre every
3000-4000 miles, depending on how I drive it. When new it used a litre
every 1000 miles but seems to be settling down a bit now.
Apparently, how you run them in can make a big difference to the oil
consumption, as can the oil. Mine came with the synthetic Castrol SLX
longlife oil in from new so you have to expect a prolonged bedding in
There is much discussion about the subject of oil usage on the
www.audiworld.com website forums. I have just come to accept it uses oil
now although i'd like to think that one day it will eventually properly bed
