Re: Oil Consumption....again!
I've done 74,000 miles since new in my 156 Selespeed.
I use Selenia Racing oil, ie fully synthetic, and change it ever 6,000 miles.
I very rarely need to put any oil in between oil changes say 0.25 litres perhaps 0.5 every 6000 miles.
I have to say that I was very careful to run in the engine gently when new and always use the engine gently until warm.
However, there are so many owners reporting high oil consumption on low and high mileage engines that I feel that it is production tolerances or quality which is the real cause not failure to run engines in.
