Oil Consumption

From Bavarian Technic

Jump to: navigation, search

Operating engines will consume a certain amount of engine oil due to the design and

operation of the engine. An engine with less than 5,500 miles will consume more than the

allowed amount due to the breaking-in of the engine components. Once the engine has

accumulated more than 5,500 miles, the average amount of oil consumption is 1qt. per 750

miles. On motorsport engines the allowable maximum engine oil consumption is 2.5qt. per

1,000 miles due to the high performance nature of the engine. A special break-in oil isn't

required with a new engine or replacement parts.
