Re: A4 oil usage

Interesting that you mention this problem.  My wife mentioned this morning
that she heard a ticking sound on her '93 100S.  Fearing the worst, I went
out and checked the oil.  My suspicians were born out, in that the level
was over 2 quarts low less than 4k miles after the last change.  I hope
it's not typical.
