I am going through exactly 1 litre of oil per 2500 kilometres of driving or every 1500miles. Has been doing so every since new. I am original owner. My tailpipes are somewhat black at the ends. There is 37000kms on the car right now. Is this normal or is there something wrong?

Toyota Ist 1298cc uses more than 5 litres for 100 kilometres

Whats wrong with that. That is very decent mileage. Even newer hybrids don't get that good of mileage. 5L per 100km is 20km/L. Which is equal to about 56.75 miles per gallon. I would say you are doing fine

Oil level drops after 2000 kms

sounds about right,in fact thats good,toyota state that oil burn/usage should be about 1/2 litre to every 1000km and will do nothing until it gets to 1 litre every 500km under warranty......remember that as a cars mileage gets higher 5/30 oil is too thin,go to 10/40, then when 1 litre to 1000km is reached go to 20/50.(toyota cars are filled with 10/40 semi synthetic when new.).

Motor is burning oill

answer 1-Sorry but this could be horrible news engine wise, one of your piston rings might be broken.Probably the bottom one that scrapes oil back down as the piston goes to bottom dead center.
To fix would mean an engine rebuild. You said "burning" other wise your using to thin of an oil.

Answer 2-Your car may have a short somewhere, like mine did. My car wouldn't start in 4th but while driving i would lose a bit of power and i would be stuck in 4th till i turned it off for a while.

hope this helps

Oil light comes on once every two months

Hi, it doesn't sound like you have a problem as BMW's can use up to 1 litre of oil per 1000 kilometers, are you using the correct grade of oil?
it should be 5 W 30 fully synthetic
