I'm also curious to what American Diesel has to say...anyone ask them?

Till I learned not to use the "full" mark on my dipstick...I burned between 1/2 and one full quart every 10 hours or so. Now after learning that...I think I only burned a gallon in almost 300 hours of my last trip. That is on a less than 1000 hr, rebuilt engine. I did an oil change at the 150 mark or so, maybe 2 qts between the oil change.
