Never had to add any oil between my oil changes. At the same time, I am 'ole school and still change my oil every 3,000 miles. However, doesn't mean that I don't periodically check my oil between scheduled oil changes, especially during the first 5,000 miles that the rings are being broken it.
Our forthcoming C7 will be the fourth vette with an Oil Monitoring System. In every owners manual, it has said to use the OMS but to change the oil no less than once per year. Occasionally, I have gotten to 1 year without get low on oil life, so if you have a garage queen, or store for the winter, it will be a good time to do your yearly oil change.There is another side to changing it every 3,000 miles some folks may not drive more than 3,000 miles a year and put their car away for the winter so it's always a good idea to change your oil before putting it away. Otherwise if you do drive your corvette 3,000 is a little soon you could go easily 5,000 and it's good for the environment.
Do corvettes burn oil? All cars burn some oil, they better or they're not doing their job. However you shouldn't be adding a quart of oil for example between oil changes.
I was on the road in my S10 and right after I did the intake gasket. I saw a 2014 stingray not sure if it had a 350 or a 427 not sure anyways it was idling next to me at a stop light and i revved up a bit to see what it had and he smiled and revved as well and I smelled this full of burnt oil smell i mean it filled my cab (windows up ac on) I looked at my dash looking for issues i was like fuk, the light turned green i took off not as a race but the corvette went ahead of me and i saw a big cloud blackish smoke as he reached the top end of his gears (im guessing 2500- 3k rpms? 1st and 2nd) but yea idk might be just like all the other high performance engines. Run em hard for a day / tear it down for a day or longer. I would like someone to debunk this because I will buy a corvette in the next few years. I was born in a 1987 i-roc z28 camaro 350 sbc and yea its in my blood.
Have over 3000 miles and not burned any measurable amount. Followed the recommended break-in proceedure but did not baby the car. When it said I could use full throttle I did and do periodically now.Never had a Corvette before, but comments in the owner's manual have me concerned. Can I expect to keep dumping oil into the engine between oil changes? I take good care of engines, and after decades of Japanese cars, I am not used to losing oil at all.
