I would wait a few days before adding oil. My phone app would show the oil was down a bit every once in a while and the next time show full. You are likely getting close but not there yet.

At the start of a 2000 mile trip the MMI showed oil quantity down 1/2. I figured I would need to add a quart by the time I got home, but now the MMI is showing down only 1/4 which makes me wonder about the accuracy of this system.

Default Oil consumption 3.0 Q7 2018

Me too - 3.0 - 2800 miles - apparently SOP for German cars. I was told to get a large bottle and expect to use it. Found Mobil 1, Euro spec 0W-40 5qt for $32.00 at Pep Boys and plan to carry a few pints around in Gator-aid bottles.- basically, is you want a car that's easy to live with and costs 50%, buy a Toyota or Honda. But it doesn't feel the same. Wish it did.
OTOH salesman said they never had to add oil to loaners. But most salesmen are poor sources of information and ignore you once sale is completed.

What is your driving pattern? Short or long trips, Force 1?

I believe Audi recommends Castrol Edge for the Q7, perhaps because thats the factory fill and what they use at the dealers

14k on our 3.0 and never needed to add oil...mostly around town stop and go driving with some highway...luv this engine.
We did look at another new 3.0 q7 before ordering ours and there was a pronounced knocking coming from the engine, dealer took it off the lot and called AOA

Understood - just harder to find. Service tech was thrilled to recommend Mobil 1.

Interesting. What milage do you get? Ever use regular instead of Premium? Owner's manual actually says it's OK.

What I'd really believe is a dipstick.
