So I did an oil change on my car thursday night at work and was surprised to see that I was a Quart low before oil change...I use Mobil 1 5w-30 and have been using it since the 1st oil change anyone else on here consume oil between changes...i do mine every time at 15% oil life....so roughly 5k miles it burns a Quart....

I ran the original oil in car till the 1st oil change was do then switched to mobil 1 Synthetic 5w-30. I do stop and go driving don't really Vtec alot. No room on the road I drive to work to really get on it. I warm my car up when its cold below 35 degrees F. To prove i don't beat on car I still have original tires and have 36k on them I switched to Snow tires in December.

Anyone else with a Civic Si have this problem?

I am going to put a poll on this as well...

I have an 08 SI with 18,500 miles. If i drive easy i never burn oil, if i race my car for extended periods of time, then i will burn about 1/4 of a quart every 1k miles. Im currently running M1 EP 5w-30

Mine consistently burns a quart or so between 4500 mile oil changes and has done so since brand new. And I've been driving it like I rented it for 55,000 miles. :vtec:

If you consistently VTEC at high revs oil gets burned or pushed into the intake manifold so, it does happen.

Off course your going to burn oil, your revving the pants off your car to 8 or 9 K RPM, any engine will consume oil at that rate. Your asking too much from it.

Voted Runing Synthetic and not burning oil. -- although my car has only had three oil changes and the first two were dino and the most recent one was Mobil 1 synth so we'll see. :pray:

i do burn some oil but its expected with the way i drive. I don't vtec a lot, but i do downshift before most corners. But the consumption isn't anything out of the ordinary.
