OIL Usage ?

I read (on another forum) that the K13 motor was known to use oil more then Normal. Is there any truth to this? My K12 (Brick motor) NEVER used any oil in 70K miles.

Re: OIL Usage ?

I've got a little over 23k miles on my 1300GT and I have not experienced excessive oil usage. Not sure what excessive would be other than being out of spec but I do not need to add any oil between changes.

Re: OIL Usage ?

I have 63k on my 07 GT and have never used any oil. I just went 6k on my last oil change and it was down no more than a couple ounces if that. I do not even bring oil with me on cross country rides.
