I have been running Amsoil 0W-30 for 30kmiles. My last oil change was at 93k and I just turned 96.5kmiles. I just added 3/4 qt to top her off.<br>I run each fresh Amsoil change for 6Kmiles, execute an oil filter change only and install a clean K&N air filter, and then run another 6k. I always check the levels and add as needed. btw, I am averaging 24.3 mpg.<br> <br>I think this is pretty good considering that most of my ride is highspeed highway, and I will admit to driving...assertively. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Is this typical for others with this mileage? Should I have any concerns?<br>Thanks- Scott

Re: Oil consumption (Lightspeed)

IMO, consumption is fine for the mileage and car. I add maybe 1/2 quart between oil changes.

Re: Oil consumption (S60R1)

I usually do 3-5K between changes, depending largely on how many (if any) trackdays I put on the oil. If I do a track day or lots and lots of really hard driving, I might be down 1/3 to 1/2 quart after 3-5K. With no trackdays and a bit easier driving (usually winter) I'm hardly down at all.
