Wondering what that

Is this the reason for high oil usage? I believe so.
Well, it's been 3 weeks since I had my thermostat changed, and my oil level hasn't moved - not one drop has been used with a combination of careful and ... FUN driving on the twisties around here. About 1,200 miles.
Before I got it done, the engine was running between 50 - 70 (usually nearer 50) degrees and using about 2 litres of oil per week. And that was keeping it under 3k - any time I went over, it was as if it used oil instead of petrol lol.
Same oil in the car.
Might be worth considering since there are loads of stories about cars using a metric assload of oil, and equally as many problems with thermostats.
