    Vauxhall quote 1 ltr per 1000miles in the cars manual. Any more than this get it checked out - saying that, i would take it to your local dealer anyway and get them to put you on an oil consumption test. Have had an 03 Astra 1.6 and used 1ltr per 500 miles - still under warranty and was repaired. Would have been expensive if out of warranty. It pays to keep at Vauxhall if u have no luck with the dealer.
