    Unhappy Audi A4 B8 TDI 170 hp oil consumption

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Ricardo, I am from Portugal, and I have an Audi A4 B8 TDI 170 hp (without oil dipstick).
    It was bought in 2010 in UK, and it has about 74000 kms.

    The reason why I am opening this new thread, concerns about the oil consumption... All the Services were made correctly (30000 and 60000kms), my driving style is normal, and about 3000km from this moment the oil level started progressively to decrease. Right this moment, the oil level remais at half of the scale (at the MMI screen). I have checked the level several times, with the engine at 90º temperature with only the ignition turned on, in a flat floor, and also during a trip and the level remains the same...

    Is this normal with only 14000km made since the last Service? Does it has any critical problem?
    Please help me out here guys. I just don´t know what to do...

    Thank you for all of your attention.

    In the manual and according to Audi, it is normal for engine oil to be used quite a bit every 1000 kilometers

    Check this thread for everyone's response to it:
    Engine rebuild required on a B8 @68k

    Each engine will be slightly different.

    It's a bit rubbish, however if it is really bad people said take it to Audi to inspect
