I just re-checked my manual, I was mistaken- YOUR CAR IS OK TO BURN A QUART EVERY 1200mi, according to the owners manual. Damn that section 11!
I found out that the dipsticks were changed to a new style on Nov 12, 2011. My october car has the old dipstick.
My car has been sitting for hours, I just checked it on my break, after a 300+ mile weekend, its 3/16 lower than on friday. Just gonna keep watching it.
So- I was wrong- its 6.25 quarts that can "acceptably" burn without soa doing anything about it.
I forgot about it being a full quart per 1200- that means you could possibly be buying 11.55 quarts per 7500mi interval. Yep, not cool.
