this subject has been talked about in various thread but I felt strongly about this today. I am at the end of my 2 week road trip. I have been touring France- belgium- luxembourg-germany-switzerland down to the south of France. I have racked up a tad under 3000 miles. I started with a full 1L bottle in Sheffield on the 15/01. By today this bottle has under 250 ml left and I'm still only around the Paris suburbs!! That is ridiculous. I have never owned a car that needed oil topping up so frequently. How can audi say 1L every 1000 miles is acceptable?? I was wondering wether or not to go to Audi on my return as I'm finding it a tad worrying..
