i wonder if break in has anything/everything to do with it.

i really loaded up my engine regularily for 1600 miles (lots of engine braking, a lot of brisk acceleration to 4000), and at 60miles on the car I did 2 redline pulls in 2nd/3rd gear. That is actually the only time my car has seen redline

at 31k i don't see really any major consumption, .75qt/7500 miles roughly. I have had a few times were I used a lot more than that, but it also wasn't under my "normal" driving conditions.

build date 4/12
