I'd say 1L every 10k roughly. I bought a box of 16L XD-3 0W-30 in 2004, did 2 oil changes (~4L each), so 8L of make-up oil for the 2 ~40k intervals. Nearly all of the loss was due to leakage, not due to consumption. As my driveway can attest. O

Replaced fuel pump and filter, the car runs better especially down low at idle. But if I'm up around 3 to 4 000 rpm it feels like it's struggling, almost like it can't find the right fuel map? Any suggestions?
