No, I am not letting it get to operating temp. I am checking it cold. I should check it warm but I keep forgetting to. I check it before I drive the car not after (the proactive-not-reactive instinct.). I drove the car today and did not check the oil with the engine warm like I said I would. I changed the oil and filter on 9 Aug. and have put 380 miles on the car since. I have not noted any oil consumption since I have owned the car, nor have I noted any leaks anywhere. I do run the engine to let it fill up the oil filter and oil cooler before I check it and it is halfway between min and max. I don't believe I am over full but I will try and remember to check it warm tomorrow (I will be taking the car for a ride tomorrow!). I'll keep you posted and I thank you for your concern!!!!!!!!!!
