I seem to have to top up the engine oil every 2-3 months. It doesn't seem to be leaking, at least there are never oil patches under the car.

Is this usual or is there anything I should look out for?

Petrol or diesel? The HDI's tend to go a full service interval with very little oil loss. If you are not leaking oil then you are burning it. AGR valves faults are the most common reason, or, more rarely, worn rings. It is important not to over fill the sump as this can set up clogging of the sump gas recirculation system.

I'm having this issue too, petrol 09 c4 picasso. I find the dipstick very difficult to read.

The little indentations are alwasys covered in oil even if I know it's low.
