The o-360c1f in my 94 mxt, uses, or rather disposes of 1 quart every 4 hours. I have 450 hours on the overhauled engine, and it has used this amount since the beginning. Maule Flight rebuilt the engine so I have faith in the rebuild. I have had at least 6 A&E's look at it carefully and they can find no leaks, so it appears to just come out the vent tube. All compressions were excellent.

I found an obscure Lycoming service bulletin that had a formula for all of its engines and according to the calculation, 1 quart every 4 hours was perfectly acceptable, so I quit worrying.

Also, Lycoming says the O-360 will run all day long on 4 quarts. I don't do that, but it is comforting to know it.

That sounds like a messy belly!
