I have a 1998 Hyundai Atos, 1.0i , manual gearbox, and it's been a while since I've noticed that oil starts disappearing, I lose about 1L for each 3000 km, which is concerning, I'm using 10w40 oil and I don't see any leaks, why is it "magically" disappearing and how should I stop/reduce that?

I would give 15w40 oil a try during the summer months but I doubt it would make much difference. Your vehicle is old and it's going to consume oil. A litre every 3,000km is acceptable. Just keep an eye on the level and add as necessary.

Fair enough, thanks a lot!
