    Just a general enquiry to my fellow members. I use a 20W/50 mineral engine oil in my vehicle and it has around 145,000 miles on the clock and runs on LPG. Generally I use about a litre of oil every 1000 miles but if driven enthusistically the old girl uses alot more, probably twice what she would normally. Has anyone else noticed this?

    No that isn't right the RV8 will leak oil however it shouldn't burn it..

    Any blue smoke out of the exhaust under hard acceleration, or at any time?

    And finally what brand of 20w50 mineral are you running?
