Default Acura RSX-S burning oil...

How many litres of oil is it from the top to bottom dot on the dipstick?
It's been 2200 kilometers (1370 miles) since my last oil change and I'm
almost at the bottom dot already. I've got about 18,000 kms on my car and
my dealer is telling me that this is normal. I know that RSX-S's are known
to burn oil but I think mine is burning it excessively.

Your dealer is full of it. Get your car chcecked somewhere else. Mine has
55,000+ and never burns a drop of oil between changes - approx 8,000 kms. I'm
redlining it all the time.

In US capacities, it is not abnormal to use 1 quart every 1000 miles. I
think a liter is a little less than a quart; going 1800 miles seems well
within reason.

I have yet to notice any oil usage on my RSX-S after 10,000kms. I've had
the car a year
and change the oil every 4 months, irregardless of the mileage.

Get this: RSX-S, 9,000 miles using Mobil1 and no noticeable oil consumption.
Oil still is transparent.
