    I seem to be topping up a litre almost every 800 miles. No signs of any leakage. I was wondering if a knackered turbo would be the cause of this? I’m hoping on starting my k03s hybrid upgrade soon and was wondering if I shouldn’t now because of this?

    A litre every 800miles is not very good, i do a oil service every 6-8k and hardly ever need to top up in between. It's likely the seals have gone on the turbo, what mileage has the car done?

    I used to get an oil warning light but a new oil pump sorted that about 5k miles ago. Theres no problem with the way it drives.
    The cars done 103K miles.
    I was thinking/hoping it might be the turbo but it still pulls hard and spools up as normal.
