    I don't think so. It's well within the limits specified in the owner's hand book, i.e., 400 g/1,000 km, or say, 455 cc/1,000 km.

    Essentially, Any oil consumption is not good. But, yes, European cars including VW has this high oil consumption issue. So, for general statement they have mentioned the safe limits in the manual. With a mention of driving conditions n other factors. But,its not healthy for sure, as I understand from some friends and other members in TFI.

    MJD owners have not reported oil consumption or top-up required between service intervals. Also, not all FIRE engine owners report such high oil consumption.

    Have you ever reported this to TASS? Bcos, when I showed concern to my TASS, they changed the oil seperator @60000km and asked me to observe. Still,I have had to do top-ups but not alarming levels. Around a ltr in last 10000km.

    My Petrol Linea has run 72,250 kms & I do not remember topping up Engine Oil frequently. I think once or 2-3 times TASC topped it up during monsoon or other service camps or during my frequent TASC visits. On my own, I have not purchased engine oil to top up. Have not checked engine oil level since long, will have to do it. But then why to do it now, next month it will be 75,000 kms service :)

    Many times, I discussed oil consumption in 1.4 FIRE engine with the SA in Concorde Motors. My SA advised me that consumption of engine oil upto 250 cc/1000 km was perfectly normal. Nothing to worry about.

    Your Linea has seen India (and some neighbors) well. Tried and tested Linea shining on foothills.

    Excellent.

    Bangalore To Chennai Non-Stop Again!

    Again, I did a non-stop driving from Bangalore to Chennai home-to-home. And, I took 4 hours and 59 minutes only, which is a record for me. As usual, Bangalore to Mulabagilu is excellent 4-laned NH 4, toll-free, so far. Mulabagilu to Nangalli [KA-AP border] stretch has gone from bad to the worst with full of potholes. The two-laned NH4 in AP is well-maintained. The Mogili ghat section is driver's delight.:) The stretch from Wallajah road junction to Poonamalle consists of potholes, badly-patched sections, undulating tarmac and what-not.:( Today, I drove through Poonamallee town instead of bypass, which could be one reason for saving about 10 minutes. My previous trip details are here.
