It has 63000 miles on it. I was just quoting the Ford literature and reads as follows:
Engine Oil Usage Guidelines
* Oil usage is normally greater in the first 10000 miles of service. As mileage increases during the warranty coverage period, oil usage gennerally improves.
* Cars and light trucks in normal service should get at leasts 1500 miles/quart after 10000 miles of service. Severe service (e.g., towing, hauling, short trips, taxi, extended idling or law enforcement use) may result in greater oil usage. Diesel engines used in severe service should get at least 1000 miles/quart after 7500 miles of service.
It goes on to state that the dealership may not work on a vehicle for oil consumption issue unless a consumption test is performed. The vehicle must be brought to the dealer ANY time the engine needs oil and the dealer must add it and log the amount and mileage in a LOG by VIN#.
Since the engine runs so good, I think I will just keep an eye on it.
