Uses oil?

Dealer told me today to check the oil every 1,500 miles or so, as Wranglers use oil. Anyone ever heard this?

IMHO you should e checking your oil a lot more often than that. More like every time you fuel up and before you hit the trail to go wheeling.

This is normal. Using 5w30 helps to reduce consumption once she starts burning.adding up to a full qt threw the life cycle of an oil change is normal. Dont sweat it.
