my 04 fusion 1.4tdci has 116k and drives well but I only have it 6 weeks or so but seems to need engine oil topped up, so far twice from min to max after having done 1700 miles - can't see any oil leaks??

I'll admit that most of the cars I've owned (petrol) have needed topping up but my last car a 2001 1.8tddi focus with 136k which I had for 2 years never needed topping up and always stayed at the max level on the dipstick

Have something to contribute?

I know they used to say that if you're oil consumption didn't exceed 1 litre per 625 mile (1000 km) it was still oke.
That's the general rule but i don't know if it still applies today.

Mine also uses some oil (6000 km (3750 miles) and 1/4 of the dipstick) so not as much as yours.


But it could be anything (reving it high also makes it consume more, i rarely go over 2500-3000 rpm).

From a defective PCV to worn piston rings
