Re: oil consumption
I put 79,000 on my '05LT and in each 6,000 miles the oil would have dropped from the top of the site glass(can barely see it) to the bulls eye. This while on the center stand.
My '08 with 4,000 on the last change is at the bulls eye. That might be 8 oz to fill back to the top. With more miles that usage may drop some.
