Re: Oil consumption

Jerry Marstall

I have 320 hrs on new ECI cylinders and having the same experience that Lynn is having.  Very satisfied with them.

When I got my engine it had chrome cylinders that never really broke in right. So after several hundred hours I broke down and put on ECI cylinder and piston assemblies ( of course I had to mess with compression, EFI, ignition, ect. as well ). When the ECI's were broke in I very seldom add oil between oil changes. I will let others pipe up, but there are some on the list with that same or better performance. Some would say oil consumption is good, but I always thought it was a hassle.

But if you do upgrade, there are options that give you 20+ hours per quart. Still may not be worth it unless you are doing it for other reasons, but that is the route a few of us have gone.

Thank you all for the input.  So my better than average engine has slowly degraded over the years to average!  I will do the compression test and borescope soon.  Will report back what I find but otherwise the CYL are like $800 times 4 so maybe oil is cheaper!

I just looked in my 0-200 manual and it says the average oil consumption is 1/3 qt per hr
