H series oil consumption (everybody post!)

I have recently completed an h22a swap on a 92 si. I notice it uses a little oil and understand this is common place for these engines, but just to get an idea of the averages here, I was hoping you guys would share some numbers. I have not been running long enough to have a lot of confidence in my numbers, so I plan on updating as I get a chance to drive more.

Here's what we need to know:

Miles on your engine: <25K (so I am told)
Year of car/engine: 92 Si w/ 94 H22A
Manual/Auto: Manual
Driving style (VTEC/day): lately... 5-6

**MOST IMPORTANT**

Brand of oil: Royal Purple
Viscosity: 5w30
Oil consumption PER 3000 miles: less than 1 quart

Hey I would say to put 10w/30 in that H22 since youre a NC and its summer, theres no need for the freezing point to be as low as 5w and 10w is a little thicker and wont burn as much hopefully.

Ive got 160k miles on a 1993 vtec, I hit vtec maybe 2-3 times a week unless I get pissed off at someone and I blare by them. I use 10w/30 from napa high mileage and change it about once a month.

- I have seen one-owner, babied Honda motors use up to 1 quart per 3000 miles w/less than 30k miles on the odometer
- Tuning does not usually = higher consumption, though running excessively rich can foul/stick oil control rings and increase it, likewise running lean can damage the piston/wall and cause increased consumption (due to detonation)
- Running low on oil can damage the piston/wall (especially at high RPM or high cornering) and cause an increase in consumption

My personal theory on most engine burning is that either the motor was built on a Friday or otherwise end-of-shift, the builder had a bad day, tolerances stacked up wrong on the motor, quality control, etc.

Honda generally considers 1 quart per 3000 miles acceptable, even on a new one. There is a TSB or service note to this effect IIRC.

Re: H series oil consumption (everybody post!)

2000 H22A4
194,000 miles
1 qt. a month

I'm curious as to who has the most miles? I just bought this one with 194k and I'm suprised at how well it runs. I have an apointment tomorrow to get the valve cover, spark plug and distributor gaskets replaced and valve adjustment hopefully the slight diesel noise goes away....... Anyone near 300k, that would make me feel much better......
