Re: Black Ariel oil consumtion rate ?

My 1930 Model B used a spectacular amount of oil when I first got it. About 150 miles to an oil tank full. And no leaks, no smoke. I was mystified. So I fitted a VB oil ring in the second compression groove and two 1/16" compression rings in the top ring groove (which was 1/8") and its bee...
