I got a question about oil consumption and if what I'm seeing is normal. Not sure if this is the right place or not, if it isn't, I apologize.
Sometime earlier this year, I brought my car into Honda because there was a leak a the valve cover gasket if I remember correctly. Shortly after, I brought it somewhere for maintenance, and was told there was no oil in my car, that was around June. After I got the maintenance done, I did the oil change myself. Since then, I had to add another quart of oil, I think tonight would be the second or third time, where when I checked, there was barely any oil on the dipstick. Added another quart and it was about halfway between the two holes.
Driving conditions are more or less the same, in the past year or so, traffic has been worse so more stop and go, but before they change the valve cover gasket, I was never this low on oil before, even with the leak.
Checked the percentage on the oil, and it's down to 20%. Not sure if that is normal or not. Any help would be appreciated.
If any other information is needed, let me know.
