Default Oil Consumption

Hi all,

Have a 207 1.4 vti 2008. Its going through a litre of oil every 600 miles.

I know they are high on oil consumption at roughly a litre every 1000 miles but every 600 seems excessive. I don't think there is a leak and pretty sure its not burning oil either.

Couple of questions;

Is it worth paying out extra for a better brand? I've tried Castrol magnatec but this was just the same.

Does anyone know the capacity on this car and what it is when the dipstick is showing minimum and maximu?

Any other tips?

Thanks

I use Shell Helix Ultra Professional in my 1.4 308, use about half a litre every 1000 miles. It seemed to use more earlier this year but much less now.

Mine drinks it,I use this. Shell Helix Ultra Professional AF Engine Oil - 5W-30 - 5ltr

If you use code SAVE30 it brings it down to 30.I know it says for Ford engines but I've never had bother and it's not in the engine long enough anyway
