Is it a leak or what??

My Spider seems to go through oil at a rate of knots but there's no evidence of a leak - normal or what - please??

'A rate of knots' doesn't sound normal - are you absolutely sure there's no evidence of a leak? Have you had the front on ramps and looked at the underside of the engine?

The TS engine can use 1 litre of oil every 1000 miles (i.e., from the max to min marks on the dipstick). Anything more than this is unusual.
