Acceptable Oil Consumpsion
What does everyone think an acceptable oil consumpsion is for an engine before it needs to be looked at be it the 4.0L Inline 6 or Windsor.
Seems the LS1/GenIII engines are common in taking 2L per 10,000km.
Also just curious on whats everyones oil consumption in their car and whether there worried or not?
In 10,000km my car hardly takes any oil, the absolute most being like 100ml. Usually it doesn't require a top up.
