    S & S,

    All engines have the potential to consume excessive amounts of oil when new until they are broke in. Generally the oil consumption stops after the first oil change but can take as much as 150 hours in extreme cases. This however seams a bit on the high side to me. I'd recommend having it looked at by your dealer just in case.

    As long as your using a good name brand of oil you should be in good shape.

    Thanks,

    Terry
