Thanks I will just pull up the capacity
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Ok
Ok so the total capacity is 4.5 litres but it won’t be totally empty so you need to add some and check but it will want at least one litre most likely 2
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
jf I’ve been filling it up with just a little bit at a time
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Is it likely that it’s emptying really quickly
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
If I can fill it with 4.5 litres then should I?
Are your checking the dipstick? Don’t put 4.5 litres in as it will have too much if it’s not empty
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Yeah it’s right at the bottom of the dipstick
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Nearly dry
Go 1 litre at a time and keep checking on dipstick
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Ok thanks
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
If I fill it 1 litre
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
How many miles should it be before the next time I have to fill it
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Coz it seems to me like it’s going too quickly
Around 1000 miles
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Ok
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
What could be a potential reason for my oil being used up too fast?
A leak or the engine burning the oil
