    My 2002 astra SXi used to use quite a bit of oil Vauxhall said it was normal for these engines to use more?

    I presume from your post that your car is the a 1.6 8v engine? from what I am aware though the 1.6 16v engines for some reason do use quite abit of oil, I'm not so sure about the 8 valver's though however I dont know what the actual consumption rate is, but I believe that it is supposed to be 1 litre for every 1000 miles
    Probably the ONLY Astra Mk3 sitting on Corsa D SXI rims!
    And Now a Diesel on Discs all round!
