    2.0 T Oil Usage

    Guys my 2.0 T seems to be using oil had the car six months covered about 4.5 K and its used 2 ltrs near enough is this excessive ?
    The car is remapped and run on 99 fuel all the time with most of the driving comuting short distance to work with the odd blast at weeknds but very little motorway/long journeys ?
    Anyone else experience the same ? What are your usages ?

    Have a look at this post from a US Audi forum, according to reports on there it's not uncommon for the 2.0T to use a 'quart' which is approx 1 litre every 5K miles but yours does sound a bit thirsty for the stuff:

    Well many major OEM's are quoting 1L per 1000 miles these days so I'm not so sure this is totally out of the ordinary.

    The newest generation 5w-30 oils also seen to have a habit of being consumed more rapidly as well as they are designed to shear to become thinner giving better fuel economy. It's all about fuel figures, it's a war!

    Cheers

    We've got a good deal on with the Edge 5w-30, buy 4l and get one free, just enter the code TOPUP when you make an order, so it works out at 40.49 for 5 litres. Alternatively buy one of our service packs so it's enough oil to change it, a top up bottle and an oil filter
