Found one in fl106. It has 800,000 miles

Uses 1 gallon oil at 8000 miles.

Is that normal


I think that would be normal. I've heard Kevin say that you can run an engine all the way untill it gets to 1 gallon every 3000 miles then it's time for an inflame. So according to that this engine should still be good for quite a while.

It's a really good engine. It's the same as the 12.7 series 60 just 2 less cylinders. It's a inline 4 cylinder.
