....and it's not leaking any!

Has anyone had the same problem? It's a 99 V 1.6 16v, and has been serviced etc. Done about 42k....

Help!

Well obviously its from the Exhaust, are you sure its not blue? Get someone to rev it and have a look, also cup some smoke in your hands and smell it to see if it smells like oil or petrol

how much are you using. your hand book will tell you the max the car will use. mine can use up to 1L every 1000km. the car burning oil is normal. burning too much is bad (blue smoke) as is filling it up to much (lots of black smoke).
