Etecs on the "ordinary" TCW3 setting average about 50:1, on the XD100 setting they average around 75:1. Modern autolubes will vary the oil ratio depending on running conditions. At tickover, oil consumption will be negligible, hard acceleration dramatically increases oil useage. If you are continually on & off the throttle (rough seas?) oil use will be higher compared to a steady cruising speed.

Cheers Dave that makes a lot of sense. It was as rough as toast Anglesey weekend. Engine runs fine so I'll not tamper with it . All good thanks Neil
