Looking at the thread with ts oil consumption, I just wonder if the V6 engines are any better, I'm considering either the 2.0 TS or the 2.5 V6 in a 156. Ive always had Vauxhalls before, and my Dad has too. generally the more worn a vauxhall engine has been, the more oil it uses. My Dads 2.0 8 valve old Calibra uses nothing between oil changes, yet both my Calibra 16v(not redtop) and Corsa GSI use some, the GSI is very worn! The Calibra 16v uses very little and has always used a little sinse nearly new. But nothing like the figures qouted by some TS owners. Im not completely convinced that these engines should use oil! But if the V6 uses less than the TS, this could influence which I choose in the end. So V6 owners, How much does your V6 use? What oil do you use? And previous experiences? Also Ive heard many opinions about which oil should be used? But why and what do AR suggest? What other hidden costs are there when comparing the two models?
