Charles is right - the indicator is more a quick guesstimate. Under accel, on an uneven surface, etc, the guage will be off.

On my last rebuild, my consumption went from 1 qt every 800 miles to 1 qt every 150 miles - all through the tail pipe and no obvious smoke. I did a leakdown and confirmed ring problem with an engine tear down.

On the new rebuild, with 1700 miles on it, it has used less than a quart total.
