I have a 2004 Pro Star 197 bought from a ski school (had 455 hrs on it when I bought it). I now have 560 hours on it and it used a quart of oil (i only use recommended oil type) since it's last oil change 26 hours ago. This seems odd? Is it normal?

My 2004 MCX (122 hours) doesn't use any oil between changes.

I'm going to ask the obvious..........Who changed the oil last time? Are you certain they filled the crankcase? My 06 MCX takes 5.5 quarts.

I changed it last and I am as sure as can be i filled it appropriately. Time to double check - will probably change it and measure again while still in warranty.

Any visible oil loss or smoky exhaust?
