I have an 05 800 P-tech. I'm not a math whiz when it comes to the oil usage formula, but I use about a half a reservoir of oil to about 150 miles. I use 91 + octane and run doo synthetic oil. My sled's oil pump is within specs as well. Seems like a lot of oil usage to me, but I would rather use too much than not enough as to keep the engine well lubed. Hope this helps.

I dont know the exact amount used, but after drivng our two shop demos this year, one is a 2005 600 HO SDI GSX, the other is a 2006 GSX 800 PT, the 800 PT has used less oil AND less fuel than the SDI uses. Yes, believe it or not, less fuel than the 600.

My '05 P-Tek this last weekend used up 3 quarts in 140 miles, Fresh motor after a burn down in 3238 miles, they turned up my oil pump beyond break-in setting to give it more oil. Mech. at dealer said when he tore it down every thing was dry so he figured it was cause of not enough oil. I may have to buy the fuel caddy to haul extra oil in, my gas mileage is good but oil consumption sucks

I filled up the oil yesterday before we went on a 120 mile run. The oil tank only dropped down about 2.5 inches. I have about 700 miles on it and I just finished a 4 litre jug. I used only 30 litres of premium on the first 85 miles of the run, which works out to 13 miles/gal, not bad considering we did lots of WOT and powder carving!

On my 05 I use to go through 1 qt. to 300 miles last year. I turned up my pump this year a little, now I'm at 1 qt. to about 225 miles, getting about 14-16 mpg on fuel
