My 2.0ltr sportwagon in the last 4 years has not used any oil between 6 month oil and filter services (10w/40).
I have switched to 5w/ 40 synthetic in the last week, and its still fully topped up after 250 miles, hope it stays that way on the new oil as the engine is much quieter and slightly smoother..
The GTV 2.0ltr in the last 6 months i've owned it has used a little drop (10w/40) it's only used once a week so approx 30ml in 1000 miles, so quite a relief, Sportwagon 10 years old 55,000mls and GTV 6 yrs old 65,000mls approx. Have not had any issues apart from service items like bushes and belts.
Although it is normal for twinsparks to drink a bit, some do and some don't, its pot luck.
