    I’m sorry to beat a dead horse in regard to oil consumption in the eco-boost engine. I went to the Ford dealership in Turlock California and spoke with one of their service advisors. I won’t mention names...Curtis told me that 2.5 quarts of oil in 2500 miles of driving was normal and acceptable for this engine. My engine currently has 5200 miles on it and runs great! It does not leak oil just burns it! Out of all the other vehicles I’ve owned (GM Duramax) I’ve never had an engine that uses oil like this one.
    I got into a debate with the service advisor who tried to tell me that their factory oil ,a blend, that came with the Ford raptor was a higher quality oil than the Mobile One synthetic 5-30 and my K&N oil filter.
    I would like to know if there are any other Ford raptor owners out there that are having oil consumption issues within the first 10,000 miles. The service advisor also said that the eco-boost engine isn’t broken in until it reaches 10,000 miles. I found that hard to believe. I am looking for input.
    Who is the authority on this subject?

    I used about a quart during the first 8,500 miles. After the first oil change it has not used a drop. I’m at about 22,000 now. Mostly drive on the highway and occasionally hard on it.

    Yes, oil consumption is an issue on these ecoboost engines. Ford has issued a notice detailing oil consumption and what to do. Ford is replacing valve covers and gaskets as a short term fix. Do not ever think oil consumption of any amount is acceptable.

    Mine was about mid way up the dipstick when I first checked it. That was at 600 miles.
    I had it changed at 1000 miles. I have since added a 1/2 quart @ around 3500 miles. I am changing
    the oil again this weekend @ 4500 miles. Mine is an 18. So yes, seems to be burning a little oil.
    I do drive it hard just playing around fairly often.

    I have 2019 Raptor. It burnt entire engine oil at 3200 miles and now at 5200 miles its barely touch the dip stick. So its pretty much out again and my timing chain is making noice. I called dealership who i suppose to take it back and they have no time to take a look at it.
