Re: Oil top up

How much has it used. I've had 3 and none ever used a drop. 5w 30 shouldn't harm it but better getting 5w 40 so if it kept using oil in future and they ask what have you been using, you can honestly say 5w 40 C3 like the book says.

I will monitor it every month to be sure until the factory service in August is due
