oil consumption

I have a 2013 santa fe sport.i switched to synthetic and after 4500 km i got the red oil light. I called dealer they want to do an oil monitoring every 1000 km.i just drove a vacation trip 2000 km and i lost 500 ml oil.im afraid dealer will tell me that's normal.i can't find any information about how much oil i normal to lose. I have only 90000km.
There is no any oil leak, no smoke,nothing. Just wondering where my oil went?

I'm not good with metric measure,, but I want to say USA std seems to be 1qt to 1000 mile before it considered excess

That's not bad but not good either. Switch to back to non-syn and see what you get.

Of all the things I ever lost I miss my mind the most.
Hey you're not getting any younger

Could you tell us what grade oil you are currently using?

Assume that it was not using oil prior to the change to synthetic. Sometimes, not often, a switch to synthetic can casue oil consumption especially during that first oil change interval. Sometimes the consumption goes away after that first reaction to synthetic sometimes not. So, it appears that what the dealer stated to do is appropriate, monitor the situation and see what develops. As to what is normal, well, I do not think the dealer will consider your situation excessive. In addition they may want to throw some services at you that may not be necessary, especially so early in the game. IMO, give it more time, top off the oil and check it frequently and see what develops in the rest of this oil change and the next.

You posted that it used 500ml in 2000km, which is a usage of 1l per 4000km. With that rate of loss, after 4500k it would be down just over 1l, which should never be enough to cause the low-pressure oil light to come on. So, if your numbers are correct, it must be that the synthetic oil change was undef-filled at the shop by 1l or more. Or perhaps it was filled correctly, which would mean the oil loss rate is quite a bit higher than what you posted.

In any case, the oil light coming on is a REALLY bad thing, and it's possible that significant engine damage has already taken place. Is your engine on the recall list? If not, you might want to give some consideration to getting rid of it while it's still running well.

My SantaFe Diesel 2.2CRDI uses negligible oil between oil changes - every two years or 20,000 miles!

Oil is 5W-30 C3.

If it ain't bust don't fix it!
Think first then use a big hammer. If it won't move hit it harder!

I never have oil problem before i got this light for oil at 4500 km. I top up 3 liters to bring it to right level then i drove 2000 km vacation trip. This time i checked oil level every day. So after 2000 km i pour 400 ml to level again. Because there is no oil leak and no smoke, i reallly think dealer never put enough oil at my oil change. From now i have to double check oil level because i can't trust them anymore...
Thats why I'm so confused with my oil disappearance....
