If you have an 05

I have an 05 Gto just had a new engine put in after it ran out of oil at 8000 miles. The dealer sent me this today..."The accepted rate of oil for engines used in the 2005 GTO is referenced is 0.946 liter(1qt) IN 3200KM (2000 miles)"

This would explain some of where my oil went. I did not check my oil. The dealer change it one month ago at 6700 miles before it blew. it also says.
"This rate only applies to personal use vehicles,under warranty, That are driven in a non-aggressive manner and maintained in accordance with the appropriate maintance schedule. Important: This rate does not apply to vehicles that are driven in an aggressive manner, at high RPM, high speeds. Oil consumption for vechiles driven under these conditions will be more" It says that you must let the car sit at least 15 min before checking the oil and after putting oil in. Now I did this waited that is and my oil leavle did not go up even after 15 min. You have to start the car and let it run for a few and the check the oil again and it will be fine.
I have 2000 miles on my new motor and the car is down 1qt of oil today. I will keep checking it let you know... between the knock sensor and the oil I'm just not sure about the engine....

Anyone else with this oil problem I can't just be the only one?

I've got just over 3k miles on mine but it hasn't been using oil that bad! I think mine used roughly half a quart when I changed it at just over 3k miles.

Changed the oil/filter for the first time at about 3300 miles.....Level was still at the full mark with none having been added.

Now at about 4400 miles, it is at the full mark.

I don't abuse the Goat.....But I don't pet it either!

I check my oil every Saturday. I noticed that it does use oil at the advertised rate. I keep a spare bottle of Mobil 1 with me at all times. Glad to see it is normal. I thought something was wrong with my car.

FYI - Did my first change at 998 - no oil used and just did the second at 3350 and it was down about half a quart.

My '05 automatic when new used about 1 qt./2000 miles. Driving was "non-aggressive" except for a few full throttle romps thru two gear changes. Got a tad over 10,000 miles now and consumption has dropped to virtually zero. Guess the rings are slow to set in the LS2.

Same with my 05 A4. Used 1 quart early and now (12,000miles) , even when I accept the urge to drive aggressively my LS2 doesn't burn oil. I run Mobil 1 and change it and filter every 4-5K. Seems crazy that they would talk about driving
"non-aggressively" in a GTO...
