If it's low on oil, it is either burning it, or leaking it, both require attention.;-)

Some cars can go through a litre every 1k miles, it's not uncommon - it's probably not been checked in years anyway lol

Do you get the car serviced ?

Just goto Halfords & look in the little book, that will tell you what oil to use
