Hi all,

My 207 1.6 VTI from the year 2008 is using quite a bit of oil. About 1l every 1000 miles/1500km. There does not seem to be any oil leakage, or smoke when starting the car.

Now, I know that the EP6/Prince engines are known to use a lot of oil, but I'm not sure if I do have such an engine. How do I find out which engine type I have?

That sounds about right for that year engine my daughter had a 2007 207cc 1.6 vti and when I tried to get dealer to sort the cars excessive oil use he had it confirmed by PSA that up to 1L per 1000 miles was accepted as normal consumption.

I don't know how it used to use so much oil as it never smoked.

I was gob smacked as my 2.0 HDI used near on no oil with over 200k miles on the clock

my nissan uses no oil between changes, but think this engine is designed to use a small amount of oil to lube the bore, problem is cheap oil or lack of service may start fowling the oil control rings. thats my theory.
