Normal Oil Consumption in 996?

Recommended Posts

To be within Porsche's specification the consumption rate is 1.6 qts (1.5 liters) per 625 miles (1,000 km).

I never need to add any oil between oil changes (approx 7,500 miles) and consider this to be normal. This is true for many other owners too. While others add a quart here and a quart there, and still consider this to be normal.

I've had the 996 C2, a 930 and the 996TT...and from the standpoint of oil consumption, the 3.4 litre 996 used less oil than any of the others....I could go a good 3,000 miles with little or no noticeable consumption....then I moved into the turbo class and the oil consumption increased dramatically....but you're pushing a lot more power and torque...along with the turbo so it's in the nature of the beast.

I have low miles C2. I'd say no more than 0.2 litre every 1000 miles. Mine has used 1 litre only between services...
