When I bought my VX, I was told that it went through about a quart of oil every 3000 miles. I have put about 2000 miles on the car since I changed the oil and filled it to just up to the top line. I checked it today, it was about a millimeter above the top line. I thought the car was pretty level. At anyrate, doesn't seem it's burning any oil at all! This was a nice "surprise" when juxtaposed to the other surprises, such as the rear brakes seemingly having never been touched in the life of the car.
