With 800 miles on my GT checked the oil today. Down at least a quart.

I check my oil once a week and I haven't consumed much if any oil. I have owned the car since August. Maybe I am lucky, but according to the poll results most people are like me. This car is my daily driver and I deal with some heavy traffic every morning so I do drive this car a fare amount.

I'd get rid of a car (or truck) that used over a quart of oil between oil changes. Something is wrong.

Mine stays on full.

Not neceassarily according to Ford! Mine consumes a quart every 1000 miles (7.5k miles to date). I changed to full synthetic at 5k miles and it still consumes at the same rate. Never any smoke, never any marks on the garage floor, never any oil splattered on the under carraige or block. It just consumes the oil. I noticed Ford put hood vents on the 2013. That was not by accident and may be a reason why the non vented hood 5.0 suffers from excessive consumption. I noticed my 5.0 will stay hot for hours after it has been parked in the garage.

JMO, I'd trade-in a new car that used a quart of oil every 1000 miles at some point before 50K miles. If there is no leak, the oil is going through the exhaust. The piston rings and/or the valve guides are letting oil escape. It will probably eventually corrupt the oxygen sensors in the exhaust pipes.

I am talking about normal street use, and not someone that goes to the track at Sebring (that is severe use).

You know where this is?

Don't know if build dates play into anything, but my Oct '11 build 2012 GT is still reading a healthy level between the dots on the dip stick even with 20+ 1/4 Mile passes and 6000 miles. Haven't added a single drop.

Yes my 12 GT has been on SIR, but only for 3 laps. Not severe by any standards. I have to disagree with you on piston rings and valve guides. Every car I've ever seen with those issues had whitish/bluish smoke coming out of the exhaust. My car burns a lot of oil, but it is NOT coming out of the exhaust. Furthermore, the exhaust pipes and tips are clean. If the car was exhibiting problems due to the oil burn I'd consider doing something about it, but it runs like a scalded dog and has not missed a beat. Considering some of the other problems people have I'm not going to trade a great runnning car just because I have to add a quart every 1k miles. Of course I'd rather not have to, but in the grand scheme of things it's a small issue. Your picture looks like turn 17 at Sebring?

If your car is burning oil, the byproducts of that process are exiting thru your exhaust. Where the hell else would they be exiting from?

Don't know? But I can tell you I've been at several events lately where there were a lot of other 2011 and 12 Mustangs. Other Mustang's tail pipes and exhaust tips looked a lot worse than mine does. Of course I have no idea what their oil burning situation is, but mine is pretty bad and my exhaust looks better than theirs! Maybe it's because in adding oil so often I burn nothning but new/fresh oil. Perhaps it burns cleaner than oil with a lot of mileage on it?

Did you check the level when new? Most have found the level to be halfway between the two holes from the factory fill. If you are now down to the lower hole you may have only used 1/2 qt in 800 miles.

I am still amazed by the fact that so many engines use a lot of oil during break in and others don't use any....... go figure.

How much money have you wasted on refill oil?

I'd be interested to know when owners who use "extra oil" will have enough....

Do any other ford cars/trucks do this?

Not sure I'd call keeping his motor properly lubricated wasting money, but I guess that's a matter of opinion.

Not the point. The point is... Why does any Mustang owner have to "keep his motor properly lubricated" by constantly having to add oil? There is no way on this earth that is acceptable or normal.

It reminds me of my 1970 Chevy Impala that I drove when I was in college.

It is the point (according to your post). I still say it's not a waste...what's the alternative? Not every engine is the same. It may not be "normal" to have to add oil at that interval, but if everything works well then I wouldn't let it blow either.

Some may take longer than others and it will level out at some point; then again, it may not and he may need to take it in and have it looked at. It would be real nice if we didn't need to check oil levels, or any number of maintenance procedures, but that's just not realistic. If it's acceptable to HIM then it IS acceptable...
