    My 99 Civic CX with about 104,000 miles on it... oil seems to simply vanish from this car whenever I do any freeway driving.

    No puddles, no puffs of blue smoke - just a mostly empty crankcase about halfway through the oil change schedule - the oil is not dirty, I have no temp issues, and only a very minute leak at the oil pan gasket - and I've applied spray sealant to that to boot...

    So, any ideas where this oil could be getting "used up"?

    Thanks!
