Of the several TDIs I've owned, the "worst" oil consumption was about 1/2 liter in 5000 miles. I consider that within normal limits.
How does that equate to the oil level screen on the vehicle? Does that mean halfway down like mine?At almost 50k miles, mine uses about 1/2 quart or so in 10k miles between oil changes.
According to pp. 411-412 of my owner's manual, the difference between the Max line (top) and the Min line (bottom) is one quart/liter (yes, I know they are not the same).How does that equate to the oil level screen on the vehicle? Does that mean halfway down like mine?
Thats what i was told by VW as well and thought it was crazy! For the average driver who has no idea on checking on these maintenance items. They'll be empty by the recommended oil change interval.Mine is a 2015 tdi with 14800 miles, the light came on today showing 1 1/4 quart low, i stopped at the dealer and they indeed add 1 1/4 quart to top it, that mean it took 1 1/4 quart per 6000 mile,
when i asked the service rep if it was normal, he checked the VW fuel consumption spec on is PC and i was stund by the answer.
For the VW Touareg 2015 TDI, Volkswagen is saying that the normal oil consumption is half a quart per 600 mile, wich is ridiculous IMO
yes it goes for some 2.0 too, he mension the passat is also at that rate1 quart in 1200 miles sounds like the 2.0 and 3.0
About the same as mineBetween 50k mile and 60k mile service my low oil warning (min level on that screen) came on at about 58k. Dealer added the 1-1/4 quart. So about 1.5 quarts per 10k miles or 1 quart every 6,667 miles is what my 2013 TDI consumes.
