SHOULD A NEW CAR "CONSUME" OIL
1999 Subaru Outback • 4 cylinder AWD Automatic • 16,000 miles
1999 Subaru Outback mileage: 16,000. Should a new car "consume" oil? Where does it go? I have checked my oil level 3,500 miles after my last oil change and found the dipstick reading dry or just a bit of oil on the tip.The dealer says my oil consumption is normal (1 qt per 1500 miles). I asked if the oil burns off, and got the answer that it consumes oil. Does this sound accurate? Is it related to the type of engine?
One quart in 1500 miles is not excessive oil usage. A slight amount of oil is used to lubricate the piston rings and is then burned in the combustion chamber.
