MagicWoman :

If you are starting fine, and not using oil, and the motor is pullung OK, I would not worry much.

13 hours without oil level drop sounds OK to me. That would be the equivalent of about 600 miles on the road. There is not much wrong, friend.

Before I re-bored it, my olde Volvo MD17C used to do in a pint of oil about every 8 hours. I used a gallon and a half across the Gulf of Mexico.
