I drive my car how it is supposed to be driven and have good compression and burn about a quart of oil every 3-4k. BMWs are designed to burn oil in this manner.
well he said every three to four weeks, and i'm sure he doesnt drive 3-4k miles every 3-4 weeks. who said a little consumption was a bad thing?He said it "eats it up". A lot of cars happen to burn oil, not enough to need to put much more in every 3 weeks. As for the auto, i drive the car pretty hard but don't lose too much oil
