I loose about 2 quarts every 3,000 miles. I have 183K miles. I had a compression test done about 8 months ago and all four cylinders had 220. My mechanic says loosing 2 qts every 3k it not really anything to worry about, and that 'real' ///M engines use a little more oil than other cars. Don't know if there is any truth to this, but the engine does not put out any blue smoke. I didn't have a leak down test done, maybe next time. Whenever I fill up with gas I check the oil, just to be on the safe side. HTH -Mark

Car is down about 1/2 quart after 1500 miles
