At 2745 miles, My 2018 Q7 3.0 still shows oil at MAX. But I continue to monitor since my old 2011 Q5 was an oil burner.

I've added around 3/4 quart to my 3.0 that is around 9500 miles (not yet in for 1k service). Not something I was used to with prior vehicles but apparently not uncommon or a sign of a problem nowadays (or at least I hope).

Before synthetic oils with long mileage change intervals became the norm, I suspect that changing oil at the old standard of 3000 miles might have mask some oil consumption (it might have been down a bit, but you were changing and refilling rather than topping off).

The consumption really depends on where you live (cold or hot) how you drive (stuck in traffic a lot) etc. You are also within your break in period so it may consume more oil during that time. Just best to check it regularly like every week

Before I changed my oil at 5k miles, it was running about a quart low. Which I expected being a new engine. Now I have 23k miles on it and never seen the oil even slightly low.

I am at 1800 mile and see it's about 1/3 low. OMG, should call dealer to do oil consumption test?

I find this interesting as I've owned 4 vehicles with the 3.0T (see my signature). I purchased a quart of the appropriate oil to keep in both of my vehicles back in 2011, and to this date they have never been opened - I've never had to add oil between service.
