Oil Consumption on a 1.6 TS
Happy New Year to you all!
Having regularly read tales of woe regarding excessive oil consumption on the TS and thinking that was not my experience, I now have my own little area of concern...
I have a 20 month old 147 1.6 TS and have always checked my oil level regularly; this has been negligible over 16,000 miles and has never needed topping up.
Just before Christmas I had to do 3 regular longish journeys, the first 200 mile journey took my oil down from top of dipstick to the middle, the next 240 from middle to bottom mark on the stick and at that stage I topped it back up with Selenia. Since then a further 400 miles has seen no drop in level although fuel consumption and engine noise seems to have increased along with the initial oil consumption.
I have checked for leaks, there are none.
Has anyone got any ideas as to what may be happeneing, should I be visiting my friendly AR Dealer and what should I be asking them to check?
My journeys were mainly motorways, cruising at around 75mph with 2 other passengers.
