    No my car did not need oil to be added in between services, the indicator was always at the top of the mark. I have never tracked my car, I would think if I had then some oil consumption would defiantly be possible, at times I do drive the car hard but in town of course that is not possible, I hope this helps clarify your question.

    I drive my 812 about 2500 miles per year; have owned it about 18 months. Looks like a consistent consumption of about 1 quart every 300 miles based upon how I drive the car. Owner's Manual indicates that this is normal. Also, it should be noted that there is no "Low Oil Level" warning on the 812. There is a "Low Oil Pressure" warning which obviously should not be your reminder to add oil.

    I’ve driven just beyond 8,000 miles since august and have consumed ~12 quarts. Though I have no idea where it was on the dipstick when I took delivery. I generally add a quart every ~750 miles. That keeps it right about mid stick

    I was told to make sure I don’t fill above the minimum line on the dipstick by my service tech. Too much oil is just as bad an issue as too little. He said they do that because of concern that foam may give you a misread . It would make sense to shoot for middle of the dipstick but this is what I was told.

    Any oil I have added above the MIN mark seems to disappear rapidly. I think it just gets sucked into the upper hoses and into the air intake. My guess is that the stick should be remarked with the MAX level at what is now the MIN level. A new MIN level should be put on the stick a few inches below what is now the MIN mark.

    I am keeping the oil level below the MIN mark and monitoring it from there. I will know in a few weeks what is likely to be the true oil consumption. The engine will not care if runs on 13 instead of 14qts.

    I just went to my car after viewing the parts diagram. The oil stick MIN mark is actually a little bit above one of the vapor lines. Oil over this mark just pours and is sucked into it. The very bottom of the stick should be the real MIN mark and the line on the stick marked as the MIN line now should be the MAX line. Completely ignore the stick's MAX mark.
