Hi there,

Are you using a mineral based or synth based oil? What weight oil are you using?

Well, em using premium multigrade API SG SAE 15W - 40 engine oil as per the manual. One thing I forgot to mention is that, after 60000miles I had send my friend to get my car for a scheduled service and for the first time he got it done not from Hyundai sevice station but from his local known workshop just to save some money, and after a month or so I was driving on highway and suddenly I noticed oil warning light began to flash on instrument panel but the engine teperature was normal. In a fear of engine siezing I immideatly pulled over to a nearest filling station, after cooling the engine for half an hour I checked the engine oil what I noticed was, only down end tip of the dip stick was wet and the rest of the stick was dry. So I refilled it by adding 3 liters of engine oil till the oil reading came on F ont he dip stick and started my journey. From that very day em facing this problem. Please help me out

I would be using a mineral based 20W-50 oil and checking consumption after 1,000 Mls try and measure any usage closley, do this and report back your readfings.
