Perhaps it’s still bedding in. Our Mini JCW and the Cooper S before that ‘drank oil’. According to BMW Mini, adding up to 1 litre of oil every 1000 miles was acceptable. It was Castrol Edge fully synthetic too, so not cheap.
R Design Pro T5 in Crystal White. Convenience Pack, Front Parking and Apple Car. Couldn’t afford anything else!! Arriving late September 2019.
My T3 has just completed 900mls and is showing a 'marked' drop in oil level as per the 'car status' report Its not flashing up any warnings yet, but it must now be close to a 'top-up' warning! I nipped in to see my parts person at the volvo dealer and purchased, an emergency, 1ltr. bottle of Volvo`s own VCC-RBSO-2AE SAE0W-20 synthecic oil as a 'just-in-case' and at a reasonable price of £8.64. Interestingly I found out that although Volvo seems to spec. Castrol Edge Pro 'V' 0W-20, this particular Volvo dealer, if you want to buy 'top-up' oil sizes, can only sell you Volvo`s own oil (as above) but when I asked what oil do they use as 'bulk' in the workshop for servicing, its.......Shell Helix! .........so you pays your money etc, etc.
