The old oil consumption story
Well, my 147 has done nearly 16000 miles now - about 25000 km - and it seems to have decided that now is the time to start using oil! For the whole of the first service interval it hardly used any: I treated it carefully and it seemed to have paid off. The only thing I've done out of the ordinary lately was about forty miles at slow speed on the spacesaver, and this is what it does. Cars make people look uncomplicated!
Does anyone know if there's any kind of pattern to any of this? And is there anything I can do (different sort of oil, etc) to make it use less?
