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 drive a RR Ghost 2011 model and just asked me to top up 1 L of engine oil and as I live in Mozambique and there is no RR agents here I would like to know with oil to use as the monitor shows level bellow minimum

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.
