I have to top the V6 up a little more than the twinny (never needed a top up!), about half a litre every couple of weeks max. Thats about 6-700 miles for me. I drive it hard so expect to put a bit in such an old engine.....design not physical age
As yours is modded perhaps it will use more? My guages read the same as your and yes, I too noticed it runs very hot. Just stand at the side of the car and you can feel it eek!
Hi guys well mine runs always at approx 90degrees also, i had a 2 litre ts before this and it definately ran cooler than the 6, also the oil temp runs higher than the 2 litre ts, however the oil consumption was way higher with the 2litre ts despite the fact that it had about 40,000 miles less on the engine. regards Paul.
