What type of oil are you using mineral or synth? And did you give the bores a good hone out to break up any glazing? I am wondering if you fitted the oil control rings correctly that is a lot of oil to be using.

THANK YOU `MHPAUTOS`. I HAVE FILLED THE ENGINE WITH SAE 5W40 FULL-SYNTHETIC OIL.I THINK THE MECHANIC FITTED THE RINGS CORRECTLY.

Run in with mineral oil, 10W-40 that should help

Thanks again, but for how long should I keep this type of oil?

First 5,000kms and see how the oil consumption is, synth oil will not bed in the engine.
