    Trying to work out how much oil my 2010 Prius is burning.

    78k miles

    Searched loads of threads but not seeing this.

    My question: what is the difference in quarts of oil between the minimum and maximum level on the dipstick????

    I believe it's 1.6 quarts. I believe if you change oil every 5000 miles, it'll be beneficial in reducing the oil burning as the miles get higher
