I monitored my oil consuption between Oil changes this time, and I'd say the old baby uses about 1.3 L of oil every 8000 Km. I have a 1.8T and I use 0w40 synthetic Oil. Now my car only has 16000 Km on the odo. so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it.

How about you. :wink:

I've got 82 thousand miles on my 99 1.8T and it uses virtually no oil. I almost never have to add any oil between 5000 mile changes.

It used to be 0.5 quart per 3000 miles before this winter. Currently, it burns 0.75 to 1 quart. I use Castrol GTX 10W40 or Quaker 10W30. My B5 is 99 V6 with 77,800 miles. It could very well be the mileage.

Oil MPG is approaching gas MPG.

Bad turbo it seems. Losing TONS of oil. In numbers about a quart a week I add. Its like an oil change every month really.

Going to get on top of that...

On our '03, 11,000 miles (16,600 kms), almost inperceptible drop in oil level between changes. 5w-40 synthetic.

Same here...2002 1.8t with 50,000 miles, Oil is still right at the full mark when my 5,000 mile oil change rolls around.

I dont add oil at all. I dont even check the oil level
I don't know if I'd go that far. I do check my oil at every gas fill-up. Murphy's law. As soon as you quit checking it, you WILL start losing it!!!!

All oil changes done at 5k interval, never had to add oil - zero oil consumption.
