Michael, my '89 300SE uses oil also.
It has about 80K miles ++.
I just check it every fill up and top off
when needed. Normally it uses more oil on long trips.
(8 hour ,500 mile trips) like 1. to 1,5 quarts
then sometimes on the way back it burns no oil!
Do a search on this subject. It is common for these
cars. You can fix it or habitually top off.
1979 300D 199 K miles
1995 C280 95 K miles
1992 Cadillac Eldorado Touring Coupe 57K miles
1979 240D 140Kmiles (bought for parents) *SOLD.
1989 300SE 148 K miles *SOLD
