Hello,I often read about " normal " oil consumption for our Porsches, and I am wondering if my car uses enough oil.My car performs well, has good power at all points on tachometer. This fall, did about 29 MPG on a 1200 miles trip. Generally speaking, I am very happy with its performance.However, when I read that " normal " oil consumption is about 1 quart to 1500 miles (perhaps to 2000 miles), I wonder if my car is ok. This summer, I drove a total of about 6000 miles, and I burnt less that 1.25 (one and one quarter) quart of oil. I always assume I should be happy about this, but I am starting to wonder. Of all the 100s of forum posts I have read, I have never seen a porsche owner state such a low oil consumption.I would appreciate your opinion please. Thank you.
