Oil consumption for well used v12?

Recommended Posts

I ask this question as a tag on to another post but no answer. What can I expect my well used engine to consume oil wise on a trip? The float was crushed by the PO so he never had an idea as to how much oil was in the old girl. The car came out of a museum and maybe thought never to be road worthy again. I'm going to drive the coupe or die trying.

Buy a gallon of 20-50. and have fun...a couple qts per 100 miles if lucky...the h v12 is a real oil pig if

worn, belching from the exhaust and oil breather/filler.

rings and straight valves asap
