I have an 06 IS 250 and have owned it for approx 6 months , have done just under 5000 miles and used 1 litre of oil , is this about right ? blush.gif

Mine does not need topping up between annual services and I average 10K a year. Engine has done 45K miles from new.

had this out with Lexus customer some time ago and had a standard manufacture reply - the IS 250 can burn (use ) up to a litre of oil per 600 miles ,I was shocked as like most of the cars I have owned do not need topping up between services .learnt to live with it over thr last few years but always worry that the engine will not last .

I'd be very worried if mine was burning a litre of oil every 600 miles.:ohmy: Leaks aren't acceptable so the only way it can go is out the exhaust pipe, so indicates there's excess clearances either in the valve guides or piston oil control rings/compression rings. Not good at all.
