07 CX7 using oil, no oil leaks present, 220,000 and oil

Customer Question

07 CX7 using oil, no oil leaks present
JA: How many miles are on the car? Have you been burning oil lately?
Customer: 220,000 and oil started using oil in the last 8 weeks
JA: What is the model/year of your Mazda?
Customer: 2007 cx7
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: have changed the fuel pump on the motor, because we believe we had fuel contamination when it first started using oil. I have a mechanic look at it and they have not come up with any answer yet. Have changed the oil at 4,000 after this. It randomly uses the oil, will be fine and not move off the dip stick then it will start using it. no smoke is coming out of the tail pipe that we can fine and no oil leaks on the motor or carport floor
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: it is using a little more fuel then normal

Hi there,

220000km is fair amount, but you may be able to reduce or stop the consumption with a product like Nulon E10 or E20.

I have used Nulon and Slick50 in many cars for many years with good results.

Certainly worth a go.

What oil is in the engine now?
