There are all kinds of answers to this question, there is even a commercial about a once a year oil change, or manufacturers that say 10,000 miles between oil changes and some that even go longer. I recently did some research on this, what I found is most engine manufactures say that one quart oil consumption in 3,000 miles is normal, some say one quart in 2,000 miles is normal, you add it up in a year you will drive 13,000 miles, your running your engine very low on oil, of course you can check your oil every month and add oil to your engine to keep it full. Or just be safe and do what I do in my own cars, 3,000 miles on conventional oil and 5,000 miles on synthetic, I change it along with the dirty filter. It’s a lot cheaper than a new engine or having other internal engine problems.
