That's within acceptable limits according to Hyundai Motor America's standard: For a proper diagnosis, the amount of oil consumed over a known mileage should be checked three times and then averaged.The accumulated mileage divided by the total amount of oil added will give the consumption rate in miles per quart. If the oil consumption rate is greater than 1 quart per each 1000 miles, further diagnosis may be required.

I just had the engine rebuilt on my 2002 hyundai accent. it is using a quart of oil every 4 or5 days .or around every 300 miles. it is not leakingit, and there is no billowing cloud of smoke. there is...

Let it break in,Some engine rebuilders use diffarent tolerances.Just keep it to the full line and when you change the oil the first time check it for anything out of the ordinary.You may want to try a differant oil all together.What oil is in it now?What weight/brand of oil?

Car has 103000 miles,after short periods of idling, the car burns oil briefly upon acceleration, uses about a quart every 900 miles

check pcv system for pcv valve plugging. and replace it and any bad hoses. this may help a bit, if the valve rattles its ok. if not replace it.

2007 GMC Yukon using a quart of Oil every 2000 - 3000 miles

Sounds funny, I would take it to an indepened repair shop and have them check it out, we have many customer's with Yukon and have not heard of that, I have a GMC with over 315,000 miles and between oil changes, maybe a qts low, have it check else where.

2000 hyundai accent 1.5 uses about 1 quart of oil per 200 miles, no smoke visible. Is there some kind of oil seperator that might be causing this or is it valve seals and maybe rings? thanks

Check for leaks around the engine which is a sign that the seal may be faulty and needs replacement. Check also if there is oil in the coolant, that could also be a sign that an oil seal is broken.

Engine oil change - Quantity

Its 3 1/2 Quarts, but you might as well put a full 4 quarts in if it goes through that much. make sure you change the filter aswell! dirty oil will not cause your engine to go through it any faster. Is the oil leaking or is the engine burning it?

Excessive oil use

the time it takes to use one quart is not the figure I need, how many miles does three weeks represent? 1000 miles per quart is ok, less and you will need new rings in most cases, which of course means an engine overhaul.
