Hi Peter, not sure if this helps but this is how I did it, I have been gradually adjusting mine for some considerable time now, I found the best way to monitor it was to make a dipstick that has two marks on it, one as the staring point for the oil that's in the tank at the start of testing and another that measures the level when exactly one pint of oil has been added. Every time I went out in the car I noted the mileage and then checked how much oil was needed to bring it up to the highest mark again, this was done for two full seasons making fine adjustments until the required rate was achieved. Quite rightly it would appear that when Goold's have done an engine overhaul or repair, they set the oiling high (oil is much cheaper than a damaged engine which requires careful running in) something that we don't do anymore with the modern motor car.
