busky5, isn't we fill petrol according to your consumption? Anyway, in view of the travelling distance I do every day, I fill petrol once a week.. if there is additional travelling required, will have to fill that twice a week.. Have a nice day..

Oh, I think I have misinterpret the discussion.. if you mean by the engine oil, we normally do that when we reach the 5,000km service mark.

Do you mean engine oil or petrol/gas/diesel? If you have to fill engine oil twice a week then you have problems with your engine! Mind you, I did have an old car like that as a student - it used almost as much engine oil as it did petrol! haha If we are talking fuel oil here (what I call diesel fuel) the I fill up about twice a month for local use but once a day if I am on a long trip. We pay about £1.05 per litre in the UK - very expensive now.

You should be changing your oil every 3000 miles. Just adding oil instead of regularly changing it is very bad for your engine. YES! YOU ARE DOING HARM TO YOUR ENGINE! You have already done damage to your car as it is regularly using oil. If you kept up on your oil changes, you would not have this oil burning problem. Regular oil changes are a relatively inexpensive way to get many miles from your car. If you read and understand your owners manual, it should have 2 oil change intervals. Light duty and heavy duty. If your honest with yourself, few vehicles qualify as light duty. Is your car used in hot weather? Is your car used in cold weather? Is your car driven in stop and go city traffic? Is your car used for short trips less than 10 miles? Is it driven at highway speed for long periods of time? If you answer yes to any of these, you should be changing your oil and filter every 3000 miles.
