I had the same thing occur. Used 1 gallon at 130 miles. Took it into the
dealer. He did the pump adjustment, said there is a "min" setting mark.
Has been good ever since, about 1 quart every 80 miles.

I was told by my dealer that I should get about 150 miles per qt. I'm getting right around 96 miles per Qt. and am hoping he'll get my pump set up to get the 150 miles per qt.!! It should run better at 150 per qt. because it'll be leaned out to where it should be. :ph34r:

After I adjusted my pump, using 1 quart per 130 miles. Haven't checked the specific ratio but piston skirts look good and plugs show plenty of oil.
