    oil capacity for the B16A is 4.2qt (4.2 quart [US, liquid] = 3.9746824 liter)

    so yeah 4 liters is correct

    how low are you when you check it?
    how often do you check it?

    keep a closer eye on your levels

    its normal to use some oil
    its not normal to use a lot of oil

    thats only about 1/2 a qt (a little less than 1/2 a liter)
    thats really not that bad

    im assuming you drive the car rather hard?

    maybe check it a little more often to keep the level up.... but that sounds pretty normal

    Yea, if you empty your enine in an oil change, when you refill it, it doesn't even register till somewhere during the last quart, so being a little low on the stick, isn't an emergency, but don't let it go to long.
