You seemed surprised at the lack of oil consumption. I've notice mine has used a little over a quart in the 3K miles between changes. That seems high to me for a car with 17K miles. Most of the cars I've had didn't use any oil between changes until well over 100K.

Funny story about "oil consumption." My buddy from MI had a Prism which he drove back and forth to school out here in PA, about a 12 or 14 hour trip. Now, when he was here, it wouldn't use a drop of oil, but after he drove for about 3,4 or 5 hours he would somehow loose all of it. Almost simultaneously. He ended up just grabbing a case or two of oil before every trip just to get home. He made over half a dozen trips like that. I don't he ever even found out what was wrong with it either.

I've had fords with over 150k miles and VWs with over 200k miles, none of them burnt or leak any oil on cross country drives or otherwise. I recently drove my f150 on 35s 2600 miles across the country at 80mph, with a slide-in cabover camper and pulling a cargo trailer and it didn't use any measurable oil whatsoever.
Just because someone started a thread on it doesn't mean its an issue like you're implying? Last I remember, oil consumption was an issue on 07-08 JKs, and JKs with bad PCV valves, which seemed to occur until Chrysler went through bankruptcy.

my '11 burns no oil, 32k miles, don't know of any other JKs personally that burn any oil.

Somebody needs to spend some time in Panama City, Florida. They don't call it LA (Lower Alabama) for nothing.

So you are saying this does not happen in California?
