156 drinking it's oil?
Hi all, hoping you can help a newbie with not much mechanical nouse!
Picked up my 04 156 2.0 jts about a month ago, all is wonderful, drives beautifully and seems like a fab car for the £3k I paid. Had been serviced and Mot'd for menby the dealer I bought it from, but I never checked the oil level.
After about 3-400 miles I got the low oil warning, checked the dipstick, which came out clean, was hours from home so popped into halfrauds and naught 2l of what hey recommended- which I put straight in (irritatingly can't remember the grade it was).
All ran beautifully until tonight when I got the warning again and again the dipstick comes out clean, only 400 miles later.
So my question is, even if the grade o oil wasn't 10w60 (which I now believe is right for the engine) could/should it have burnt 2 litres to one tank of fuel when it seems to have Ben running perfectly? Suggestions for next steps welcomed!
