All BMW V12 Engines are allowed to burn 1.25litres of engine oil over 850miles. has any one ever experience this ?

Hi Syed, I drive a V12 Rolls Royce Seraph which does not "burn" oil at all when doing over 850 miles. Must be some thing seriously wrong?

been driving ROLLS ROYCE Ghost, after 2500 miles had to topup 1 litre of oil as oil warning alerted.Very strange Just FYI best oil is Mobil fully synthetic 0-40 thats what Rolls Royce adds.
last time bought from BP between grosvenor hotel and dorchester hotel london but name of the petrol garage has changed i think to esso. Please advice is this normal.

Oil consumption explained above is normal for the RR Ghost and the RR Phantom as they are twin turbo engines. Nothing to worry about, just keep an eye on oil level often.

I own a RR Ghost 2013 with 5000 miles already after 1000 miles i got alert to fill up with 1 liter oil , according to dealer , it is normal , but very hard to believe that i have to open the hood of new RR every 1000 miles to fill up oil . can someone confirm if it is engine problem ?? since i cannot believe it is normal.

I own a 2011 Ghost. According to my Rolls dealer in Houston Texas, this is common. I also find it odd, because mt 2006 Bentley Continental GT never uses a drop of oil.

I own a 2015 Ghost II that used 2 quarts of oil in the first 10,000 miles. The dealer says it's normal.

I also own a 2015 MBZ S550 with 10,000 miles that uses no oil. The dip stick is on the line.

The Rolls Royce us a pice of shit. Does anyone know why the Rolls Royce burns oil?
