2012 Boss 302 oil consumption

There are several threads on it, but I will try to distill them for you.

Some people say yes. I used 1 quart in 500 miles. Many people seem to have had oil consumption for up to 2k miles.

Some people say no. They have not used any. And others have used up to possibly 7 quarts and are pissed about it.


IMO, forged pistons and synthetic oil conspire to burn oil when the car is new. Check the oil every couple fill ups, if it is a street car. Just like you do tire pressure, coolant, brake fluid, etc. If it keeps consuming oil, then you can have a consumption test done by the dealer but 1 quart in 2.5k miles is not a big deal especially since it is break in.
