Oil consumption Poll

Hi Again,
Something else I am curious about. In one of the threads last week a
number of you were talking about the amount of oil you consume between
service intervals and it seemed quite common for a number of you to do
top ups.
My '94 80 has 145,000miles on the clock and doesn't need any topping up
between services (every 5000-6000 miles) - I run on Comma semi-
synthetic bought in bulk from local motor factors.
So to get a record of this, just for diesel 80s for the time being,
please provide:
Vehicle age:
No. Miles Done:
Service interval:
Amount of oil required for top ups between services:
Oil used:
Average driving:

'93 HDJ-81
120,000 kilometres total
7-9,000 kilometres oil change interval
Oil consumption negligible...
Currently using Castrol GTD Magnatec, allegedly semi-synthetic. Not using
synthethic because it is hard to get in remote locations but maybe I
should...
Mix of m-way thrash, at speeds over 130 kph, London crawl and off-road
thrash to get photographs.
