Quick question on oil use.

Hey Y'all. Just a quick question on the 1.2 16v engine (188a5000): is this engine known for wasting oil quite easily? I had an oil leak a few months ago but it was fixed but still the oil level keeps going down quite quickly. It's a daily so I use it to go to work and not much else
I've had it for 2 years now and done around 20k km but, like I said, the oil leak was fixed and done an oil change since then.
Thnx in advance and have a good week.

Re: Quick question on oil use.

Hi
This motor has been around for 20 years..

The forums excellent SEARCH will find all the relevant info

Oil consumption is all relative

If all 4 spark plugs are the same digestive biscuit colour.. ( not oily..)

Its probably fine

Manual probably says 1 litre every 600 miles is ok... and that was when new

Re: Quick question on oil use.

I have the same engine. I have no figures for you but it only very rarely needs more oil. I did an oil change about a month ago and slightly overfilled it and there is no change on the dipstick so far. But I only go to the shops with and do the ocassional motorway journey
