Re: Yanmar "Starting to use oil"


How many hours did the engine run for it use 1+ liters of oil? If that was in 1 hour something is REALLY wrong. It was as in 100 hours then it's not that bad.

And what has it used since then? Perhaps the oil was low after a change and didn't use that much oil? Or, perhaps the rings are shot and it's burning oil at a high rate. A single data point (used 1.25 liters in July) doesn't tell you much.
