RPM's and Oil Consumption

 

By VWNate, Metropolitan Mailing List

 

You guys will not believe this but..... I just put shy of 3,000 miles on my Met and it used two quarts on the first half of the trip when I was running it @ 3,800 RPM, I decided I was pushing it too hard and kept it right at 3,000 ~ 3,2000 RPM's for the rest of the trip (all the way home from Canada) and it didn't use any!

The engine is clean & dry, no oil drips apart from a small seepage from the fuel pump mounting gasket.

With the 3.72 pumpkin it works out to exactly 57 MPH @ 3,000 RPM, I checked it with radar during the trip.
