Anyone here with N52 engine having issues with oil consumption? When I bought the car it had 0w30 Castrol in it and I had no issues with thirsty engine. After driving 3000km I switched to 5w40 and since then I had to start filling up quite often. Last time before driving 400km distance the sensor showed minimum level so I added half litre and it was gone after finishing the driving. Not sure if I should go back to 0w30. Does it actually mean that if engine is thirsty that I should change the oil? I want of course a good oil but to a fill up another 5l of oil between interval is kind of crazy.
