Just put my first liter in today. This is 3,000 miles after 1200 break in. I am quite surprised at the disparity in oil usage. Obviously very driver dependent. I drive like the old guy that I am.

Good news, I checked my Oil at the dealers after 1200 mile service and the level was about an 1/8" below full !!, not sure why.

Used none since and 1925 miles covered.

Not even close (I hope) to needing "earl" in mine yet...only a few hundred miles so far. If I do get low at some point before the 1200 service - what should I keep in my trunk - 0W-30 or 5W-30? Or depends on the weather at the time?

0-30 all the way, weather has nothing to do with it.

This break in period is killing me btw........ Its like being married to Beyonce but sleeping on the couch every night
