    Just curious to how much oil do you get through between services?

    Since getting my car I seem to be using more oil of late, owned the car just over a year now, but between the last 2 services I've had the oil light come on each time, last time was yesterday in less than about 1500 miles since service. (About 3 weeks). Seems a bit off since between the last two services.

    None. I haven't added any. It was last serviced 6 months ago.

    It only 6 months as I was told it had just been serviced before I got it. I get oil and filters very cheep. Brother has his own garage. So thought it better to be safe than sorry ;-)

    Ha, yeah I do about 500 miles a week so not much chance of me managing 6 months between services.

    Quite a bit when my turbo was on the way out. Had to top up every few weeks or so. Haven't topped it up for a while now tho
