Looks like oil consumption is normal, but.....
I went for a 180 mile trip today and I stopped (130 miles into the trip) to top off fuel before i got into the city.(gas prices) when i went to leave the gas station, my vee would start then die immediately. I pushed it over to the shade and started looking at the basics, first being oil level. To my surprise the glass was empty. I will admit i got a little over zealous and put in an quart. But luckily it was just over the high line. Then it ran just fine. Could this be a major issue?
