2.0 TDI 150KM burns quite lot of oil

Post by mrk » Fri Jul 07, 2017 8:06 am

Hi

I have B8 with 2.0 TDI 150KM engine since January this year. I have bought it brand new.
Is this normal that this engine burns 1l of oil for every 6500 miles? I have done so far a bit over 19 thousands miles and I have had to add 3l of oil already :roll:
I had many different cars before but first time I have a car that takes sooo much oil. I'm dissapointed.
Should I go to war with a dealer to get it sorted or it is "normal" :-?

Regards
Pav

Yes it's about right, if you read your owners manual, it says 1ltr to 1000km is normal.

Mine is slightly different engine the 240bhp version. I changed the oil at 10k and the level was still full never had to top it up.

Nothing to be concerned about. Really depends on how heavily right-footed you are. I have done 70,000 miles in mine in 2 years, and top up regularly. My more feather-footed colleagues hardly ever top up between services, if at all.

Enjoy your car !

I have 52 000km in 2.5 years and I have never added oil myself and the garage never informed me of any low levels while servicing the car
