well it shouldnt. unless you are constantly living on the redline with it.

check if theres any blue smoke when u fire it up from cold or if you boost it and lift off. does it have the correct grade of oil in it???

Mine uses a bit but no where near as that much. Speak to Nick at NR Autosport 01522702277, he was talking to me last night about fitting an oil breather kit which should reduce oil consumption. He did explain why but I can't!

if yes, what does it mean ??
It means you have oil coming out from somewhere it shouldnt be!

the smoke appears when i m on the fourth gear at 2000/2500 rpm and i accelerate to 5000 rpm or more

i m not sure about the colour of the smoke because it was night and i saw the smoke in the light of the car that i passed
but it smoked like a bad diesel !!
the journey i don't see anything in my "glass rétro"

i boost 1.7 peak, 1.5/1.6 stab
ecu ralliart
filter ralliart (dirty, need new one)
full decat

oil level: the engine "eat" 2 mm from the max gauge in 4500 km
and the car have 25000 km
