Default Luqui Moly engine oil

I am running the Luqui Moly GT1 10w60. I am using a lot of oil and was asked by the engine builder what oil I am running. Any opinions on if this oil is known for burning oil. It doesn't smoke at start up or idle.

Not that I know of. I just started using this, have not noticed anything.

You have a fresh engine or an old one that just started going through oil? What is your situation?

It's a fresh build from an 85k engine. Fresh head, all new bearings but original crank, rods, pistons with new ring set. It was built for a race series that requires all stock engines.

Hmn thats the second engine in the last week or so that has been rebuilt and started running LM and had issues burning oil. Others that use this oil on engines that are already run-in don't seem to have issues... so making a vast extrapolation based on the small number of data points it at least seems to indicate that maybe this isn't a good oil to run-in a rebuilt engine... or the two users have not run the engine in very well...

It's weird as in povo Youtube grade tests the LM showed more wear than other oils which would make you think it was actually better for running in and engine and helping seat the piston rings but the opposite seems true.

How much are you actully using can not stress this point enough on rebuilt engines to run a running oil for a 1000km from build!

Pretty sure that's just a coincidence.

Not known for burning oil that I know of.. Liqui Moly makes great stuff. I run 10W-60 in the M3 & M5. No issues.
