Really happy with this first oil report and that no “magic elixir” was added at the last oil change by the dealer. As a recap, it consumed a quart in the first 2,500 miles, then a quart at 3,040 miles and finally ¾ of a quart at 4,435 miles. On a side note, I would like to thank this website and other Jeep sites allowing people to post and contribute their experiences. Without them, I would have never guessed in my 30+ years of driving/owing vehicles to monitor the oil level this closely on a new purchase. Glad I did my research before buying. Below is the oil usage I observed in 16 months and 9,975 miles …


Oil Level --------- Miles Driven
3/4 mark ------ @ 800 miles (on OD)
½ mark -------- @ 1,700 miles (on OD)
Low mark ----- @ 2,500 miles (oil/filter change)
----------------- 2,500 miles driven on oil

5/8 mark ----- @ 1,000 miles (3,500 on OD)
¼ mark ------- @ 1,000 miles (4,540 on OD)
Low mark ----- @900 miles (5,540 on OD oil/filer change)
-------------------- 3,040 miles driven on oil

7/8 mark ------ @ 1,055 miles (6,595 on OD)
¾ mark -------- @ 1,250 miles (7,845 on OD)
5/8 mark ------- @ 1,180 miles (9,025 on OD)
¼ mark --------- @950 miles (9,975 on OD sample at Blackstone added 1 ½ qts make up oil, did not change oil/filter)
------------------- 4,435 miles driven on oil
