Hmm so about 100ml per 10,000 miles... Not all that bad most things considered, I'd be curious if different types of oil show more/less production.
Your running 5W30 right Q50adix?
Yes. So hereís a couple of personal observation i have (none of this is scientific by any stretch):
- when i bought the car @5k, oil was just filled with 0w20
- @10k, 0w20 oil was dirty yet still smooth revving and quiet but decided go for an oil change at infiniti. They put mobil 5w30. Engine was noticeably a tad noisier
- @15k, noise at cold start for about 5-10 sec and noticed oil level was a few mm below the H line. Dealership said they wonít change it as itís only been 5k miles since the last service. So i bought my own 0w20 from costco and replaced it. It was smooth and quiet again.
, oil was still good, no apparent decrease in oil level. I wanted to bring in the car for the ECM recall (reprogramming) and local infiniti has a coupon ($15 off oil change) so i thought why not. I also had them replaced my diff oil. Unfortunately, they forgot to do the ECM update but thatís another story.
- @24k, this is right around when i installed OCC and noticed a decrease again in oil level. Drained it and replaced with castrol 5w30, same noise level as dealer oil and itís only been 1.5k miles since. No consumption issues or anything yet. I will inspect the OCC in about 500miles from now.
Note: the apparent engine noise is normal. 0w20 is just noticeably more quiet than 5w30. Also i have not observed decrease in oil level within 5k miles when using mobil 0w20. I canít speak for anything over 5k as my OCI never gone over that range yet.
