Dear Sir
I notice in the amount of oil shortages at the deadline change every 3,000 kilometers
And has reviewed the repair man did not notice any signs of oil on the candle burning. And there is no leakage of oil from the motor.
Where to go half a kilo oil almost at the end of the term for oil change

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

The oil are most probably being burnt in the cylinders or getting to the exhaust via the valve seals.

You could be burning the oil past the rings or valve seals.

You should check your oil level evry week so you dont damage the motor.

You need to top up in between and when oil change is due, you need to have it replaced.
