My wife's 1.25 zetec Fiesta has the same problem. It uses oil like nothing I've seen!

I did read somewhere that the valve clearances need checking and adjusting from time to time, and that if this is not done, it can lead to excessive oil consumption.

Not sure how true this is though.

im afraid oil consumption on the 1.6 engine is very common. mine also uses quite a bit of oil but for me its not worth investigating, although from other stories it looks like it may be piston ring related. The crankcase breather valve can cause oil consumption - if blocked the oil gets forced past the rings.
