Question,

How much oil do you use now your Foz has over 100,000 miles?


Also, how many miles a week do you clock up?


Thanks for your response in advance.

regards

I put 4 ltr in on an oil change which puts it to 1/2 way on the dip stick. I don't have to add more between services, but then it's hard to see if it's lost any just by looking at the DS. I do no more that 150 miles per week for the last couple of years, and i'm at 106,600 miles.

Same as everyone else...105k and hardly any oil used.
Presume that there is a reason for the question Alan..does your car drink the stuff ?

Cheers

~130,000 here. 5 qts go in, and usually get about 4.5 back after 4,000 miles. If I change at 3,000 theres no measurable loss at all.

188,000 miles on the engine and sometimes add 1/2 QT between my 3K interval oil changes. I use Valvoline MaxLife 5w30 oil.

Oh....and I have been known to put up to 2K miles or more per week on mine. Lately been averaging about 500-1500 miles in a week.

Last year I put 40K total miles on the other 99L that I had. That's the one this engine came out of.

117k, 0-1 qt every 4k on Dino Castrol (high mileage). The legacy doesn't loose any at all at 85k and being almost 17 years old a(lso high mileage din Castrol)...

Usually put ~200 miles a week on 'em.

162,000 -- never used a drop of oil between changes. I do follow the 3750 between changes because I have the turbo. I do dealer services - because I'm lazy and we live in an apartment -- just to much hassle to do myself.

159k on the Foz and about .5 qt of Mobil1 5W-30 EP Syn every 10k miles. :smile: About 400miles per week average, I'd guess.

148k on the Outback and .2 qt every 4k miles. :( 200-300 miles per week lately.

~132,000 miles, 5,000 mile change interval since this car spends most of its life on rural highways, 375 mile average per week (it varies widely from week-to-week, 50 to 1,000+ miles), no noticeable loss of oil between changes.

I should note that this car lives a very easy life on the road, with very little boost and a lot of time on cruise control.
