I'm currently at 181K+ KM (~113K mi). I've had an 'oil consumption' issue since I got the car (67K km, ~42K mi). However, I get killer mileage, and as Loek will concur, NEVER a hint/sight of blue smoke from my exhaust. Would going up to a 10W30, (or other 10w40/50?) help slow it down? I'm thinking it's ~1L per 2,000 km? I know my #1 cyl compression is lower that the other three (sorry don't have the #'s off-hand, but IIRC, #1 is lower by ~ 10-12psi vs the other cylinders). Like I said, the car has always run great, just annoying to keep checking the oil so often.
