A mate went though a high oil usage issue with his BMW K1300S motorbike where he was using 600ml per 600miles of the specified Full Synthetic, after trying to resolve many times with the dealer for not being " fit for purpose " as a Sports Tourer he was quietly advised by the dealers mechanic to try it with Semi Synth but if he did it would void warranty.
