Oil Consumption

      Hi

      First: sorry, this isn't a German post, I can only write it down in English.

      My JCW just had 44K km's. On 23K km's he got his first oil change at the garage. Now I have to change oil again (indicated by the BC). The oil level is just between 'MIN' en MAX'. Is it normal it used this much oil?

      Ps. Usage: 9,5 l / 100 km and JCW Pro Exhaust system.

      Thanks in advance!

      You never know exactly...

      Most of the measuring devices are not 100% accurate - also in my Porsche Carrera - quarter liter deltas may occur, also depending on oil temp, small differences in the car's level position etc.

      No worry.

      Our F56 JCW with about 52000km had the first oil change at 30000km, it was still on MAX.
      We regulary checked the level and it was always on the MAX
      However when i checked 500km ago the level was on 75% between MIN and MAX,
      that will mean that 250ml is gone.
      That is almost nothing and i didn't fill it up yet, i repeat to measure again one of these days and then fill it up when it is half the way MIN and MAX. That is 0,5liter.
      I think you don't have to worry about the oil consumption, 0,5l/20000km is very less.
      Only fill it up in time with the right oil.

      And what Willi writes, the car must be on a 100% flatt floar.

      Thanks for al these answers! It makes me back more relax.

      @Niekcarfreak: I've just had the same! First 3/4 and then 2/4.

      I think this oil measure system can only show the oil consumption in blocks of 250ml, that is why at one time it jumps from 75% to 50% between MIN and MAX.

      Till the first service at 30000km it was still on MAX. Now 20000km later the level is on 75%.
      It is possible that the engine starts to have oil consumption when it has more kilometers or during the service at 30000km they put some less oil in the engine as from the factory. I think when you get the Mini new there is still the oil in the engine that is filled up in the factory?!
      It can also be an combination of the two things.
      But even an half liter on 20000km is almost nothing.

      I have mixed feelings with the electronic measurement, you get no dirty hands when you check oil level but an normal dipstick als extra would be better.

      Glad to hear, you're in the same situation. Your theorie can be true!
