GTI Oil consumption

Post by DKPOLOGT »

Hey folks

How does it look for you GTI owners running the 0w-20 Oil, in regard to Oil consumption?

Just trying to find a normal level...

No top ups required between services for either of our 2 GTI+ (one now gone).

If it didn't consume enough to need a top up then its not a big concern. Mine had the oil level stay at the top of the dipstick the whole time I owned it, before and after its first service. Oil use should be negligible for mine.

I've had 11 VWs from new and the only one that used an appreciable amount of oil between services was run in on motorway miles (used a litre every 1500 miles) - I wouldn't recommend it. The rest never needed top up between oil changes.
