Gt Burning Oil
Posted August 28, 2012 - 12:30 PM
Oh, I've always done the maintenance by the book- other than draining the gas and oil at the end of the season due to my laziness.
I'm hoping that there might be some other cause for the blue smoke but I won't hold my breath- unless I'm on the mower (ha).
Any comments will be appreciated.

If it's a Head gasket it will get worse and worse pretty fast.It will start off smoking noticeably when you throttle up and will proceed to get worse as the compression from that cylinder will make the hole in the gasket bigger and bigger.
Worn Rings will take alot more time for the smoke to get worse.And cracked or worn Valve seals will make it smoke noticeably but by the oil consumption your saying about I'm betting on a Blown head gasket.

P.S. As said a leak down test will point you in the right direction, if other things suggested check out.
