Hi all,

Just wandering how much your C36 uses on average, I did a HARD 500 mile round trip the other day and got through 1/2 litre, car has done about 100k miles and seeing as I'm new to this car I was a bit worried, I know some performance engines can use a little when pushed hard, BMWs M5 for one.

Any help appreciated, Nik

oil consumption

my c-43 burns about 3/4 qt. every 4 tanks of gas. So about every 1200 or so miles I add about 3/4 of a quart. I don't know if this helps. I was a little concerned too. Hopefully it's just the way of a performance motor.

My C36 uses negligable amount of oil, if any between oil changes so far. I change the engine oil between 8000Kms-12000Kms using Mobil 1 5W-50. It has travelled about 96,000Kms so far.

When I used to compete in this car for sprint events and track days it didn't use any oil.

While the car was running in it used to use about 0.5L in the first 2000Km which was its first engine oil change.
