I have yet to see ANY consumption on Mom's 1996 2.0 Passat, with the exception of when she went a whole year OCI on shop Castrol RX 15w-40, it was down 1/4 a quart. All short trips. GF's 1987 5cyl Audi uses under a quart per 6000-8000mi oci. 210k miles on that car. I use about twice that in my V6 30v. Under 2q consumed on my 11k GC runs.

AJ, There is life outside your driveway. Talk to some of the 1000's of people that own late-model 8v 2.0s. All engine consume oil. Some like to drink it like Kool-Ade. (OK, I'll stop now [Big Grin] )

She's getting a CR-V. I bought her a beater 90, but it's all apart and she needs an AWD asap for work. Things are a lil tight since I bought an appt building...a country house and a city house. One of them has to go.
