Volkswagen Polo Owners Manual: Engine oil consumption

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Engine oil consumption can vary from engine to engine and can change during the working life of an engine.

Depending on how you drive and the conditions in which the car is used, oil consumption can be up to 1.0 litre/2,000 km – and is likely to be higher for the first 5,000 km for new vehicles. The engine oil level must therefore be checked at regular intervals, preferably when refuelling and before long journeys.

When the engine is working hard the oil level must be kept within area , for instance during long motorway cruising in summer, trailer towing or climbing mountain passes.
