Note
The
engine
oil
level
must
not
be
below
the
marking
©,
because
this
increases
the
risk
of
engine
damage.
After
adding
engine
oil,
the
oil
level
must
not
be
above
the
marking
(2)
>
fig.
142,
be-
cause
this
increases
the
risk
of
catalytic
con-
verter
and/or engine
damage.
If
the
oil
level
is
above
the
marking
Q),
drive
to
an
author-
ized
Audi
dealer
or
authorized
Audi
Service
Facility
immediately
to
have
any
engine
oil
extracted.
Avoid
high
engine
speeds,
full
ac-
celeration,
and
heavy
engine
loads.
@
Tips
The
engine
oil
consumption
may
be
up
to
0.5
quart/600
miles
(0.5
liter/1,000
km),
depending
on
driving
style
and
operating
conditions.
Consumption
may
be
higher
dur-
ing
the
first
3,000
miles
(5,000
km).
The
engine
oil
level
must
be
checked
regularly.
It
is
best
to
check
each
time
you
refuel
your
vehicle
and
before
long
drives.
Because
of
the
lubrication
and
cooling
of
the
engine,
combustion
engines
consume
oil.
The
oil
consumption
varies
depending
on
the
engine
and
may change
during
the
service
life
of
the
engine.
Engines
generally
consume
more
oil
at
the
beginning
during
the
break-in
period.
Then
oil
consumption
stabilizes
after
the
break-in
period.
Under
normal
conditions,
oil
consumption
depends
on
the
quality
and
viscosity
of
the
oil,
the
engine
RPM,
the
climate
conditions,
and
the
road
conditions.
The
dilution
of
oil
from
condensation
or
fuel
residue
as
well
as
the
age
of
the
oil
also play
a
role.
Because
engine
wear
increases
with
mileage,
oil
con-
sumption
will
increase
again
over
time
until
it
may
be
necessary
to
replace
worn
compo-
nents.
Because
all
these
variables
play
a
role,
it is
not
possible
to
define
an
oil
consumption
standard.
Therefore,
the
oil
level
must
be
checked
regularly.
If
you believe
that
your
engine
has
in-
creased
its
oil
consumption,
contact
an
au-
thorized
Audi
dealer
or
authorized
Audi
Service
Facility
to
determine
the
cause.
Please
note
that
an
exact
oil
consumption
measurement
must
be
done
with
the
neces-
sary care
and
accuracy
and
may
take
time.
An
authorized
Audi
dealer
or
authorized
Audi
Service
Facility
is
trained
in
accurately
measuring
the
oil
consumption.
