How much oil does the 3.0TDi get through?

Not a lot at all from my experience. I've did 11.5K and i've only had to add in one extra litre of oil in that time.

Makes a big difference from last car, my Alfa GT, which used to burn a litre of oil every 1000 miles. And apparently that was normal :eek:

Excellent, nothing to panic over then as have only done 2500 miles....

Also makes a big difference from my last car - S4! Used to drink about a litre every 2500 miles!

Well it is was an Alfa....:D
Agreed - lucky to be in a position to put oil in... I've had 2 Alfa's. The first one the engine ate itself (despite putting oil in). The second got totalled by some blind idjut pulling out of a minor road on me.

Well, I put Selenia synthetic oil in my modified alfasud and I put a litre in every weekend! (about 200 miles) although, about half of that just leaked out of almost every gasket in the engine even after rebuilding the whole engine!

Audi Tech reckoned that I should keep a close check on oil levels, that the car did use a bit of oil the price for such great torque.
