Oil Checks on 147 selespeed

Just wanted to check I am not worrying to much about my bellas engine, however I read somewhere (autoitalia magazine alfa 147 buyers guide) that the engine should use about 0.5 - 1 litre of oil every 1k miles or so, having checked my oil regularly it does not seem to be consuming oil at anything like that rate? Is this relatively normal or has the magazine got its facts wrong?

The engine COULD use that amount of oil, some hardly use any, nothing wrong with that.

Keep checking it though, you never know when it may suddenly take a drink...!

Each engine seems to be different. My previous 2.0 JTS used about a litre every thousand miles. Current 2.4 JTD has used less than half a litre in 8k.

(And I thought diesels were the oil burners!)
