I've noticed it takes awhile for the oil to get back to the pan on the LLO...Although part of my trouble in getting a good reading is that I have hard time seeing new oil on the dip stick. Before I changed the oil, I probably wasn't letting it sit long enough and I was assuming massive oil consumption because the level on the stick was low, and the blue smoke at idle. Now that I've run it a bit, I don't have the blue smoke.
