oil consumption

is it normal to lose about a quart of oil between oil change intervals? 3-4 months.

Ya i think so, depends on the miles not the months tho, every 3,000? 4,000? 5,000

Yes, every oil change since brand new I lose almost a quart and I use full synthetic and change every 5 months or 5K.

I just turned 36K on my 08 gt and I've never lost oil between oil changes. Mine is a DD about 80 miles round trip and have never encountered this, You might wanna get that checked. Just my 2 cents

All cars naturally burn oil between oil changes. You're saying that your dip stick reads exactly the same after 5000 miles from your last oil change?

Although that is true as my old silverado did but all I was saying was I change my oil very frequently from all the miles I put and I've never noticed a drop in oil...ofcourse I'm not looking at it with a microscope. No pun intended but I myself have never noticed this with my car, my old truck yes but not this car.

That doesn't make sense, cars are suppose to consume oil, not a lot but it does happen, and if you drive the car hard youll burn more

Like I said my car is a DD and I change my oil frequently, and no out of all the times I have changed my oil it has not been any different from the time I last changed it, ofcourse I don't sit there and look to see if maybe it's a tiny tiny bit off. This is not my thread I replied giving my opinion, the guy is losing a "quart" between oil changes is what he is saying and yes if my car is using some it's not showing on the stick. Just giving my 2 cent to a fellow member.
