Some of you may know my history with oil consumption on my '02. After performing an oil consumption test for the last 14,000 miles. Everything is well documented with the dealer. I finally and being made an offer from GM. Currently I am using 1 quart per 1100 miles unloaded, about double when pulling my trailer. Their offer is giving my an 100,000 mile on the motor that I currently have, I purchased the extended warranty when I bought this, I always but it. OR, putting a new engine in, I am having the dealer ask what kind of warranty is on the crate motor. I am leaning towards the new motor, since I already have the extended purchased. The dealer said they may give me back my extended warranty money if I take that option. On the other hand I change the oil regular, and the places I have it done will top off the fluids when low between changes. I have 38000 on this thing, and I bought in the fall of '01, maybe the motor plant has made some changes in the manufacturing process to aleviate the problem, I work for GM also, so I know this happens alot without the public knowing.
Please '03 2500 owners give me your oil usage so far, and I am looking for anyones feedback.
