    B8 S4 Oil consumption

    I have been reading so much about the oil consumption. Mine is running buring very little compare to most people, several thousands miles for half a litre if not less. Should I be worry that the MMI not reading correctly or I should call myself lucky!?!?

    Mine didn't use much...it depends how it's been run in, but don't trust the MMI as mine had a mind of its own.

    You can buy a dipstick from ECS (I think) which is a straight replacement for the plastic plug which comes as standard and means you can check your oil the old fashioned way !

    As easy as remove the black plastic cap and stick in the dipstick in its place.
