I just finsihed putting 3200 miles on my Z06. After 1000 miles on it, it has been on a 925 mile trip and a 1300 mile trip. Most of the time cruising at 75-80 with a few good throttle burst to pass, merge onto the freeway, or after stopping at the toll booth. When I got home after the 925 mile trip, oil was down 1/2 qt and 1 qt for the 1300 mile trip. Has anybody else seen this or is this normal for this engine? I found out that you are suppose to check the oil when the engine is HOT not COLD like other cars. By the way, here's a picture of the new Z in the Rockies with Longs Peak near Estes Park, CO. in the background, more are on my Web Site under Slide Shows.

We have 10k on ours oil changed every 3k has not use more than 1/4 of a qt between changes.... that would be about 1 qt every 13,000 miles..I cut it no slack ...love to pull 7000 rpms in 1 and 2nd .... what a rush....

im not an expert but my understanding is that you must break the motor in .that means bring that thing up to 7000rpm a little more often .that will seat those rings. give it a couple thousand more miles if it keeps burnin oil bring it in.
