    My 1.6 petrol Astra has done 50,000 miles. Every 5,000 I need to add one litre of oil.

    Does this seem right? No stains in the road under where it's parked, no blue smoke out the back.

    The only other time I've had to top up oil like this was when I was a kid driving old bangers.

    Vauxhall say anything up to a litre every 1000 miles is ok so you are well under that.

    FWIW, my 2000 Astra 1.6l petrol 8v is getting close to 50,000 and still
    seems to not use oil between services.

    It has other quirks such as the ecu light coming on occasionally, and
    nowadays, going off a day or so later without me resetting it. It used to
    stay on unless I reset it. Garage say "unknown error" so that's not a lot
    of help.
