other JTD owners how often do you top your oil up?
what level on your oil gauge do you take action?
what oil do you use?
cheers

Aye, what the consensus is!

I have never seen it dip between services, and I do check the dipstick not rely on the electronic wizzardry!

This engine seems to use no oil, I was really surprised when we did a 2500 lap of Europe last summer in 30c+ heat it did not use any! (fyi max autobahn practical cruising speed is 120)

My current JTDm used about 3/4 litre during the first 10 K, nothing during the next 12K but at 30k it needed about 1/4 ltr. Now on 35K and just about to be swapped for a Cloverleaf 170 Q2 (and I said I'd never have another because of the dealers !)
