It is a 1.8 mate sorry. I dunno why I thought it was a 1.9.A 1.9 petrol engine. Can you confirm that's correct and it's not a 1.9 diesel? A petrol engine of that size should be a 1.8 or 2.0
How many miles per litre?
Vauxhall specify their engines can consume a up to a litre of oil every 1000 miles.
No way. That’s so unlucky mate. Hopefully you will have better luck with cars from now on.Do you know what grade oil is currently in it?
No two engines are ever the same. My old 2004 Vectra-C 2.2 petrol had 36,000 miles on it when it got written off. It used a litre of oil every 2000 to 2500 miles. I bought a replacement 2006 Vectra-C 2.2 petrol that also unfortunately got written off when the engine was on 106,000 miles. That engine didn't use any oil between 10,000 mile services.
No way mate that’s so unlucky. To many idiots about.It was 6 years between each of them being written off. The 2nd Vectra was caused by a muntjac not using the green cross code and stepping out in front of the car on the A34 bypass.
You might want to try using a slightly thicker oil. Hopefully someone else might have a suggestion what to change it to.
