I check mine every week (honest
) and it does use a lot. No leaks or smoke as mentioned. I reckon it uses half a litre every 4 weeks and that's about 500 miles
I was getting worried because mine didn't appear to be using oil at all. After about 5500 miles since it's last service it had finally got down to about halfway between the dots so I called to my garage and got them to top it up for me as I was passing one day.
I now have a tin of Selena in the shed for the next time it starts to go down again.
by comparison, every 500 miles seems a tad excessive old bean.
She does look good though!
