I have done 30k miles in 20 months in my Gen3 GTS since I bought it new and have had to top it up once around the 8-9k miles.

I have a Gen 2 GTS which has the same engine as the Gen 3 S (and the same state of tune). In the first two years it took 0.4L. I used to regularly check the oil level but since the first service at 12K miles, it hasn't used any oil so I'm much less vigorous in my checking routine.

I put in 2/3rds of a litre when prompted after 11k. Checked today after 15k and its halfway between Min and Max. So that works out around 13k per litre of oil.

Oil change service question - Gen 3 "S" registered 12/23 - My service indicator shows "oil service 06/24 and 7000 miles" , current mileage is about 9800 so not going to cover 7000 miles before 06/24 . Has the oil service got to be done 06/24 or is it in 7000 miles ?????????????

My OPC gave me a 1L of oil when new must be expecting me to do a top-up. Not used it yet.
