Oil consumption
« on: March 30, 2019, 10:15:33 PM »
Throughout 10 years of ownership, my 3.2l V6 159 did not consume oil.
My Giulia drinks just under half its oil capacity between service intervals (15,000 kms).
I am not overly concerned, as I don't mind topping up, or having my car serviced regularly.
However, I would like to ask the Giulia community; is this level of oil consumption considered 'normal'?
This is my first turbo and I do not know if turbos drink more oil (and have not consulted the book of Google), but would appreciate the opinion of the internet.
Regardless, Giulia remains an awesome car.

Does your model of Giulia have a dipstick or just relies on the electronic sensor?
