The harder I drive, the more oil it will use. At most, maybe 1 quart every 5k... so you are fine.

My 2000 uses about 1 qt. every 2000 miles. I'm glad to hear that seems normal...I was a little concerned. I am not sure where I read this but I've heard that ford considers oil usage of up to 1 qt. every 1500 miles "normal." I might have read that on this forum, or in one of the manuals...

2qt every 5-6K gets burned up in my truck. Over half that is towing and/or pulling it's guts out. I have 169K on my truck. So it seems about right in line with everyone else for oil consumption.

It takes 15 qts. on a filter/oil change to put mine at the full line. It will lose enough to bring it to the middle of the "ok" mark almost right away (within 500 miles) then, it won't use a drop for the full 6k that I go for the next oil change. I have 142k on mine.
