I'll start out by saying that since my 1977 VW Rabbit, which was recalled for leaky valve stem seals, I've had no measurable oil consumption with any of my cars until my two current rides. My wife's 2011 Acura TSX wagon has consumed about 1 quart of oil per 3,000 miles for the the past 6 years or so. I received a notice from Acura about 7 years ago extending my powertrain warranty and warning of increased oil consumption. The notice recommended using to Top Tier gas to combat the problem and I also put Techron in the tank couple of times a year for several of years. Additionally, I stopped using the "maintenance minder" and switched to an OCI of 6k miles, alway 0w-20 full synthetic. This reduced consumption from 1 qt. per 1,500 miles to my current 1qt. per 3,000 miles with 114,000 miles on the odometer. I was inspired me to check my 2007 V6 manual transmission Honda Accord and it's using about a quart every 6k miles. I typically add a half quart midway between oil changes. I'm just curious about other's experience with newer cars and oil consumption. I'm chalking it up to the use of low tension piston rings in the Acura along with its high compression (11:1) engine.
