My first car was a high mileage Civic that ran great, but I had to add oil whenever I put in gas. I kept a case of inexpensive 40w oil in the trunk (yes, it had a trunk, not a hatchback). It only smoked at high rpms too. If you live in a warmer part of the country, you could probably use a heavy oil year round.

I would do a compression check.

Why on earth would you put Mobil 1 in a car burning that much oil? You might as well throw the money out the window on the freeway. I would think a professional engine evaluation is in order.

throw a little nitrous on it that will seal those rings up...


ok for real though... go to a shop and ask for a compression test... find what cylinders leaking and see what can be done... probably gunna need a rebuild... a good shop (this is a very very good shop) shouldent even need to pull ur engine to replace rings and so on... if they do pull it... price getting it honed and new pistons and so on... even a good balancing of the factory pistons would improve ur engines life and performance...
