hey,about a year ago had head gasket fixed by vw,all fine, then in jan this year had new turbo fitted by turbo specialists and van runs great but it seems to use oil now, never did before?? No visible leaks,no smoke, plenty of power but my question is this, could some breather pipe be blocked or more likely the wrong grade of oil put in and its burning quicker? (read something on here that mentioned it) ??? going across france next week and will be bringing my 5ltr oil with me as seems it has to be topped up every 1000km or so, any clues, ??:* it is a 07 1.9tdi brs engine with 248000 km on clock,

Happy to be corrected but a litre every 1000 is about right isn't it. :*

i read that in the owners manual but im just surprised that after almost 6 years of ownership that it suddenly starts drinking oil? was just trying to eliminate other more sinister causes,,,,,:D
