Hi guys.
Hope I’m in the right place!
I have a Honda Civic 2003, 1.6 v tech. Drives beautifully and a great car. But.... she always used oil. Always. But this weekend I did a round trip of 430 miles and she’s used 3 litres of oil. I had the engine stripped 2 months ago. There’s no leak and I’m 100% not burning any oil. I’m not a fast driver either! Any ideas would be awesome! Cheers guys.

When was it last MOT'd, and did it use oil at the same rate before the last MOT? The emissions test will show you if its using oil or not as the HC reading will be through the roof, however if you are not loosing oil yet it needed 3lt in 430 miles id say it is burning oil as, other than it ending up in the cooling system, there is really nowhere else for it to go.
