    How much oil? Minor oil reduction is normal.

    if & when there is oil reduction, very 1st thing I have learned from few selected tech guys at this forum is GO for Compression Test.

    Change engine oil and see. Use a thicker oil. Perhaps viscosity grade 5W40.

    Ohooo, I was not aware of that. So he is using a thicker oil already.
    We'll, if the oil consumption is very minor over a long range of distance covered, thane it's fine. He may only need to top up.
    But, if the oil consumption is high, with blue gray smoke from the exhaust then an engine overhaul may be required. Or at least top overhaul with piston ring replacement and engine head inspection and over haul.
    Leakage of oil should also be checked out first.
    PCV operation should also be checked.

    Half lit over 4000km....there is absolutely nothing wrong...your engine is pretty good...you shouldn't have shifted to Zic Hiflo then....stay with Zic A....Hiflo is for old engines reducing considerable amount of oil like half lit in less than 1000km .... Hiflo cant protect your good engine like Zic A.....
