Just wondering if anyone has been having problems with the firecats going through alot of oil.
I fill it up and about 60-70 miles later, the oil light comes on.

So the light is on. How much oil do you have when it comes on ?

About 1/4 tank or so. I only have 300 miles on my f5, and I have already used 1 1/2 gallons of APV synthetic oil.

WOW,a gallon and a half in 300 miles,Id be asking questions too!Seriously though,your dealer needs to adjust your oil pump to 60-1 to 70-1 or so.I'm assuming a little here,like mpg,but I'll use 10 mpg for the example ,but to give you an idea, your oil to fuel ratio now is at 20-1 or in that area,your using three times the oil you should be,GO SEE YOUR DEALER! ;)

I burn lots of oil too. It's getting better has I put on miles. I am up to 800 miles now. I will take it to the dealer after the season is over. A little to much oil is better then not enough.
