Oil consumption normal?
I know there are many reports of the new light weight oils causing more than usual oil consumption and I know most auto companies state a quart every 1k to 2k miles is considered "normal" but I wanted to check with the real world.
My 2014 with 36k started using oil recently. Last three changes I noticed zero oil use, however in checking my oil today it was 3/4 of a quart low. This is not overly excessive but considering it didn't use a drop up to 30k the recent use is a bit concerning.
So what other 4.6 owner seeing.
Truck is a lease and I was considering buying it when the lease ends next month, but this issue raised a concern.
Of course I know I have another two years or 14k on the power train warranty, but I also know Toyota won't consider this an issue and if it does become an issue four years down the road I am left holding the bag.
Anyway feedback appreciated.
