So I burned another 1.5 quarts in the last 3000 miles, so consumption has cut in half. My TSE contacted Ford and received the following in a letter:
"it is normal for this engine to use oil during engine break-in. It may use more oil if driven aggressively (hard acceleration, high rpms). As the engine breaks in, oil consumption will decrease. Oil consumption specs are stated after 10,000 miles of driving.
Oil Consumption Specs:
Engine Oil Usage Guidelines
x Oil usage is normally greater during the first 10,000 miles of service. As milage increases during the warranty coverage period, oil usage generally improves.
x Cars and light trucks in normal service should get at least 1,500 miles/quart after 10,000 miles of service."
