    engine consuming oil is very normal, it should consume about a litre in 4000-5000 kms - sometimes more depending on the condition of valve seals.

    But again - even brand new engines consume oil, dont be alarmed if a little amount of oil is low. When you fill up oil keep it between the L and F marks on the dipstick, dont fill it up to the top.

    check chamber gaskit, oil pressure gauge, oil filter, air/oil separator gaskit, etc.
    I have a 2006 Alto, 65K driven and Allhamdoilillah it never reduced oil.

    Make a compression test of your vehicle's engine, if the compression is low its means engine is weak. If compression is ok its means engine is ok but engine is consuming oil from valves oil seals.

    For compression checking you have to go etherized 3S dealer their technician will check the compression of engine. For example Toyota Corolla 1.8 (1ZZ-FE ) engine compression procedure is below.

    Now you should use more viscous engine oil.Use 20w,50 of any brand instead of 10w,40 which is less viscous.
