    2.0 TFSi - took it to a track this morning... if I'm going to try and see what 130mph feels like in the car then I won't do it on the motorway.. check this... 130mph on about a mile of drag strip left...

    Checked oil... it had burned a litre! Whooosa!!!

    Also found oil on one of the hoses... photo to follow once I figure out how to upload photos here.

    That does not sound very good. I do 130+ mph at least once a week and mine does not use a drop of oil.

    Could be? Maybe worth doing a compression test.

    Sorry mate, I don't know the 2.0ltr TFSI engine and I can't picture where that pipe is. If it's the one with the jubilee clips on it then it's been replaced at some point I guess. VW don't use many jubilee clips.

    Regularly do well over 120 without burning any oil. there's a corrugated breather on the top of the engine, it's common for it to distort and can cause a loss of oil. although burning a litre is very very high usage on oil.

    no blue smoke...

    compression is fine...

    may be it is valve seals or piston rings... i'm just preparing it and sorting it out for it to be sold on to my work mate..

    where is this couragated (sp?) breather???

    the oil burn has calmed down at 120+ mph by using a 5w40 race oil... strange! now half a litre but that is still bad for a drag strip.

    Mine had a track outing at Brands recently and despite cooking the brakes,the engine itself was fine and burnt virtually no oil.
