oil use

I have a 01 7.3l with 95000 mile and it seems to be using about 2qt of oil between fill ups (about 400mile).
any suggestions?

I dont know about the leak, but keep it filled up. check it every day if you have to. one of my cars has a slow leak and i have to put a little in every 4 days or so to keep it filled up. the last thing you want to do is have an engine with not enough oil in it.

cavitation is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Any blue smoke out the tail pipe or small puddles in the driveway? That is really heavy usage. I use about a half quart in 3,000 miles.

Try using a high miliage oil, they have additivaties in them that help with that problem. Also Lucus oil additive it also works pretty good.
