I just changed the oil in my boat after about 30 hours (108 hours total) and was down about a quart and a half. Most of that time was spent wake surfing or cruising ~3700-3900 RPMs. Should I be concerned with that? The boat is still under warranty, should I tell the dealer about this?

My perspective would be inform them. Get it on the record with the dealer that you have consumption, ask them what is an appropriate spec for oil consumption in your motor.

Unfortunately very difficult to fight this. Had the same trouble with Audi who publishes a spec of a quart per 1000 miles which is a joke because the car then uses as much oil per oil change as it holds before being out of spec!

Anyhow I do see it as a fault and would definitely bring it up on a new boat under warranty with my local dealer. I wouldn't be overly alarmed to add a quart per oil change in my boat. But between two boats I don't routienely hit 20 hours per boat per year.

what year audi did you have? my old 2010 A4 drank a quart every 750 miles but I had the motor rebuilt courtesy of audi! my 2015 A6 does not use a drop and my fiancÚ's 2018 Q5 doesn't either.

The problem one was an 07 A3. 08 was in the class action.

Pcv still drank Rebuilt it still drank a quart per 500. Valve cover swap to aftermarket cured it. Audi was worthless with it. Same issue on a 2009. BMW has it happening too.
