    If you check your Audi manual you will see this consumption is within specification.

    There's quite few posts on this subject mate, it's quite normal. Some people are using 1 ltr of oil every 800 miles. Like me lol!

    Weird how some use oil and some don't, I purchased a 1 litre bottle over 2 years ago and never opened it, even on a 2000 plus mile trip to the south of France, I've never had to put any in just gets changed each service.

    I got the same issue. There seems to be a fix if you have deep pockets as worst case scenario it could be bad piston rings

    I wouldn't panic. My 2.0 TFSI uses oil, never measured it but "a fair bit". In contrast our VW Jetta 2.0TDi which is "supposed" to use oil never, ever has. Go figure.
