severe oil loss
Hello all. I have an 81 Spider, converted to Webers, and I'm losing ALOT of oil when highway driving.
The car does not smoke AT ALL, but after 60 miles of highway driving at 65-70mph I lose at least a quart of oil.
Again the car does not develop a lick of smoke, I can't believe the oil is being burnt, I've got to believe it is leaking out while the car is running at high speeds and high compression.
Of note, the car does leak a bit of oil when sitting - about a teaspoon a week.
Any thoughts about the most likely source of the leak? The oil pan always has some oil on it - but not a ton, I've looked for an obvious source - but can't find one.
Many thanks for any input!
