'99 D2 and use less than 1qt every 3k miles. No oil on the driveway but always have the wet look under the engine with a few drops that look like they'll fall any minute but don't.

96 Disco I with 102k. I have synthetic oil and I go through about 1 quart every 4000 miles or so. I see a drop every few days or so in the driveway.

thanks for the responses. I put a half a quart in before a recent trip to ATL, then last week another half. so that would make my consumption about a quart every oil change. Seems high, especially compared to my last Toyota, but I was expecting that, what with the DII motor coming straight from the '66 Skylark! :D

My 01 D2 really does not consume any between changes. I pressure wash the undercarriage about every 2 weeks or so and I can usually see a faint wetness but never any drops before I wash.

You did say you were "particularly" interested in DII, not "only" DII responses.

14 responses, only 7 from DII owners...so much for reading comprehension!

:D
Hmmm lets see, unless you own a 2003 with a 4.6 it has the same motor just different electrics.

But as pointed out by snwbord24 and as per your first post
