      I noticed I have to add 12oz of oil every 1250 miles. I don't have any oil leak at all. Valve cover seal and chain tensioner seal was replaced. The only thing I can think of is the valve stem seal. Turbo is new by the way and exhaust gaskets.

      I might have to replace the valve stem seal when the valve cover seal leaks again.

      That doesn’t sound extremely bad. That’s about 3k miles per quart. I wouldn’t worry too much unless it gets worse.

      Thank you. I'm keeping track so I know if it gets worse at some point.

      Head gasket or valve stem seal are still the original since it was new or zero miles. Its now 194000 miles.
