Engine oil is easy to check but what bothers me is these the trail hawk rene transmissions and diferentials.

chuckle....life is to short to worry about anything, you either shrug it off or decide on a solution and go do other things like maybe play with toys or buy another one.

You got that right. End of the day cars come and go much like oil. Wow, from where does the oil go to philosophy.

G'day form Australia,
It's most likely the oil is being burned. (the TigerShark is a 2 stroke)
Has anyone got a mechanic to check the exhaust emissions?
Better still, if it's still under warranty, take it over the pits.
Get a defective sticker.

FCA might THEN do something?
If not - Let the LOCAL PAPER know.
Being FIAT they'll probably just Fix It Again Temporarily!

The "burned" theory has been presented many times. But if it was burning oil there would be additional signs; smoke from the tail pipe, exhaust tip filthy, catalytic converters getting blown out, etc.. The oil just disappears.

Thanks Mud Pie,
The recommended oil is so light it's almost 2 Stroke oil.
So unlike the old OIL BURNERS you won't see the ADDITIONAL SIGNS.


SAE 0W-20 MOPARŪ MAX PRO PLUS is really Pennzoil Platinum with PurePlus


Some say Pennzoil Platinum High Mileage Synthetic Oil improves the problem.


You could even try Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic Oil


TOO EXPENSIVE?
Oil is cheap compared to the cost of engine repairs.
Plus you get better gas mileage.

Not always unless it is burnt at lower temperatures. Cconventional oil begins to het very thin without much heat applied and easily passes the rings into the combustion chamber. 100% synthetic oil can be heated to several hundred degrees F. before it begins to thin. When mobil one was born around 1975 they only had one weight oil a 5wt and claimed it exceeded all current specs for oil in any gasoling engines. I had a new honda 750 which called for i think a10/30 and switched over to M1 at that time cautiously. Bike ran quieter and used zero oil which amaxed me as i excpected that thin oil to disapear in a heart beat in that engine but it never did. Drove the bike for around 50,000 miles then sold it and bought a jeep cj5. M1 soon came out with a 10mt and i switched to that in the honda cause the 5wt scared me. Synthetic oil just don't need to be heavy to lubricate better than heavy conventional oils. I had forgotten the old honda untill i started reading this thread.


100% syn is cheap insurance
