Yes, mine uses lots of oil, typically about a gallon every 40 miles:D

However that is diesel not the kind that lubricates the engine. The other kind seems to be much better; 17,000 miles and and none needed to be added to the engine.

I don't know where the suggestion that it uses lots of engine oil comes from but it has used the least oil of any car I have owned. I have not seen any posts suggesting high oil consumption in this engine. Perhaps it varies with the way it is driven, and if you max the revs frequently it might use much more, but it does not seem to be the best way to drive it- clearly the economy would suffer, but the engine gets a bit breathless if you push it to the max too.
I would suggest that if you find yourself needing say a litre of oil every 1,000 miles or less there is something wrong, or the car has been driven very hard.
