After you vote, and you are using oil, please give some stats IE, what engine you have, iron block or aluminum, oil you're using, miles on your vehicle and if you have completed a consumption test.

This poll is flawed if I understand correctly, we know if people are burning or not. But theres no way to accuratly gauge which engines are burning more, you can still pick engines and amounts of oil even if you choose "No"

Could be many different oils, as different dealerships use different brands. Mine back when I used to go to the dealership was castrol.

Bought brand new....'07 5.3 w/AFM alum block, 4 speed, 54k, started at 26k(valve cover PCV replacement), again at 52k(new lifters driver side, AFM relief valve shield, and decarbon piston rings), whatever type oil dealer uses, 4k-6k between changes, mixed driving(city&hwy), some towing but not heavy(<3000#). The amount used seems to vary due to the two repairs I've had done, but seems to get worse as time goes on.

At 2000 miles past the last repair, 1/2 qt low.

07 5.3 AFM Alum. Block, using 2quarts per 5000 km. Consumption test done, dealer told me it's "normal" so I've written them off as morons.
I should add though that it only consumes oil when in 4cyl mode for extended periods of time. When I make a 1000km trip on the highway I can go through 3/4 of a quart. If I drive only in the city for 5000km It doesn't consume very much at all. Definatly AFM related.

we have a fleet of these trucks , over 125 of them. day by day these are coming into the shop with low oil levels or lifters that have failed. they dont think its if you will have problems with these afm engines but when. the upper brass are now looking at other manufactures.
