Check for external oil leakage along right side of cylinder-head. Oil can burn on exhaust in such small amounts you will not see it or smell it.

My Opel Corsa 1400 has done 201,300 km on the clock. Not realy using oil. Every now and then pushes a bunch of smoke through the exaust system when starting the engine.

On higher mileage engines the internal parts are very worn such as piston rings. This can allow small amounts of oil into the ignition chamber. This burns off as you run the engine.
If the amounts of smoke is small and not very often it is nothing too serious to worry about. If there is a lot of it and it regularly happens, the only way to fix the problem is to completely dismantle the engine and rebuild it with all new seals and gaskets, a full engine rebuild.

New Toyota Etios, VD,KM 1100, observed thick white smoke from exaust pipe for @ 1 Min, while running engine on ideal.

the white smoke occurrence is due to unique Vehicle usageconditions like slow speed & Short trips drivingthe catalytic convertor is not able reach its optimum reactiontemperature.

starts burning inside the Catalytic Converter. During this Chemical Reaction,Momentarily the white smoke is seen in the exhaust and is normal

My wv crafter using engine oil 1lt / 500 km is its normal or not what im can do to using less oil

You could ring Volkswagen service but using 1lt per 500 km is extremely excessive!

If your Van is old, you could be having problem with your engine cylinders oil rings being worn or broken (obvious Black smoke and oily exhaust pipe).

Check the followings as your Van could be losing oil from:
- Oil refill cap, dipstick cap
- Head oil seals
- Engine oil sump gasket or emptying plug at the bottom
- Engine gaskets
- Oil engine rubber seals
Look for oil leaks/stains under your van: this would be a good indication of seals leak.

Take your care to a motor mechanic before it gets worst!

Hope the information is of some assistance.

Loosing oil, no spots or puddles on ground, no smoke from exhaust

A very common issue with the 1.9L engine is oil consumption. You may not see alot of blue smoke out of the exaust but it is very typical for this engine to consume oil without any visible leaks.

My 2004 audi A4 consumes oil at a rate of 1 1/2 quarts every 3 months. There are no apparent leaks and it is not burning it. It idles and runs smooth. Any suggestions?

How many miles/km's you drive in those 3 month's ? oil consumption is normal ! Check when you first start the engine in the morning wetter or not you see a puff of blue smoke, if you see smoke , your valve seals are leaking.
1 liter oil each 2000km is normal.
