I am the owner of a 2001 Audi A6 2.8. In 2005 during the summer time I experienced engine oil loss during the summer time. The dealer said it was due to summer conditions (heat, humidity). The problem continued until today. Is there any advantage of using synthetic or regular engine oil (until today I always went with the synthetic) or any treatment I could apply? The only solution from the dealer was to monitor the engine oil level and add to it if needed.

Thank you,
Karamian

Any idea of your consumption rate? do you ever see any oil on the pavement after you park it overnight? I have herd of other Audi's and Mercs using oil due to dry seals at the rear of the engine. I personally would stick with the synthetic oil.
