    Hi does anyone know how much Oil an RS5 typically uses? Took delivery of mine in March done just over 6000 miles and the low oil light came on - toped it up with 1 litre of fine synthetic and all is fine. Just seems like its using a fair amount of oil compared to other cars ive owned. Just wondering if anyone else has any experience of this at all?

    compared to some of Audi's Turbo engined cars which guzzle oil, I think your RS5 is only sipping oil and usage sounds ok to me.

    when the light came on it was a bit of a surprise that's all - checked the menu and its not due an oil change for another 11000 miles which is great but a litre in 6000 seemed a tad high - best get down to Shell and stock up on oil! :sm4:

    Yeah sounds perfectly normal usage to me.

    Some of the turbo engines are prone to use around a litre for just a thousand miles :)
