So I have had my car for about a month now and currently have 1800 miles on it(I love driving it!). The story is that up till 700 miles I drove the car normally(hard) and the car didn't burn a drop of oil. I then changed up my driving technique to save some gas while I was in the city. Between 700-1200 miles I burned enough oil to put my oil level down by 2 cm(dipstick). After thinking that was weird I went back to my normal driving style and just checked it last night at 1800 miles. Guess what? No drop in oil at all. So I'm starting to think this isn't a coincidence. I'm guessing putting it in a higher gear the engine may be lugging more even though the rpms seem fine. Just my .02.
