Check the oil that's in the car; had mysterious oil consumption on my 560SL (148K) after the first oil change under my ownership. Found the shop had used 10W30 in a Michigan summer; took it out myself and put in 20-50 as per manual, in a high-mileage-engine formula. Now I'm making 3000 miles to the next change without dropping to the point of adding oil.
