I check the oil at every fillup and topped it off only 300 miles ago - it's now empty. Im guessing the turbo is gone at this point but was this caused by the...

    Quart low after 300 miles?

    K, obviously, this cant be right. I thought there might be a mileage problem... still not thru the first tank yet (only 300 miles into it). Thought i'd take a look at the dipstick and it looks like the car's already gone thru an entire quart of oil. For a list of what recent maintenance has...
