Re: Tears Over My Alfa
If it was me I would be reluctant to get a new engine until I knew where the oil was going. The 'botched job' explanation does not sound very expert to me. Does the mechanic work for a Alfa specialist? If not get an opinion from one. Someone on AO should be able to recommend one near you if you say where you are.
The oil cannot just disappear it's either leaking, being burnt off or going somewhere it shouldn't. Either way its a lot of oil to be lost and it should be obvious. If its otherwise running OK, when its topped up, you may be able to get it fixed without too much trouble if the cause is found.
