I own a Sept 2008 Mondeo 2.0 TDCi 140 bhp. It has 12500 miles on the clock. I have just started to tow a caravan with this vehicle and during a recent trip out of 175 miles I have had to put in 1 litre of oil. Is it usual for cars to use more oil when towing?

Have something to contribute?

This is not unusual especially if you have done a high milage. I had a cortina many years ago that was sore on fuel when towing but for all the milage I done towing I just lived with it. Brian
