Hi Laura,

I have 900km (somewhere around 600 miles) and I'm down 1/2 quart. I expected that. New engines tend to use a bit until the rings fully seat.

Same happened to the Hemi in the Road Runner after I rebuilt it. First thousand miles or so it used a quart. Now it goes all season without losing any oil.

I just went to the Ford dealer and picked up a quarter of the Premium semi-synthetic 5W20 and topped it up. I'll put synthetic in it after the first oil change.

I'm tired of shows about vampires. I want to see killer umpires!
