I have been driving my 2000 for a month and a half now, with about 3,000 miles put on it in that time. I changed the oil a week or so after buying it, so there is around 2,300 - 2,500 miles on my oil. I check it every so often, and after the last check it is showing first signs of some consumption, which I read as normal.
SO, with 2,500 miles on the "change" is this an average amount of consumption? Pic is ok, the level was about half way between the marks.
