Question

Should my car be consuming a litre of oil in 1,000 miles? Everything else seems fine and it is regularly serviced.


Answer

Every engine can use oil, some more than others due to type of engine design. 1 litre of oil is a little excessive and could be caused by an external leak or worn engine components i.e. valve stem oil seal wear, piston oil scraper rings.
