How do you know that there is only 1 litre in there ?

The difference between the top mark and the bottom mark on the dipstick is usually about 1 litre. IT should only need topping up if the level drops below the bottom mark

i have the 2.0 petrol and my oil does not move, even after 10k miles its in the same place...

Just wondering if this could be a factor?? whats the outside temp where you are???

also what MPG are you getting?? or how many miles off a full tank??

I think that if you only had 1 litre of oil in your car the engine would seize as there wont be enough to lube the engine and your oil light would come on. Normal oil capacity in my 1.8t is about 4.5 litres
Does your oil level or oil pressure light come on

400 KM is only 248 miles... i get at least 400 - 450 urban off a full tank, which is 725KM,.,, and i use 97 octane or 98 or 99....

however the outside temp here is only about 18'c at the moment so the aircon is not working too hard!!

However if i drive mine really hard i can see it drinking that amount of fuel?

however something does not sound right...

no it would not be an issue... i used 97, or 98.. try for 98 all the time as the car runs so much better on it!!
