BTW IDIABUSE, interesting illustration of the cylinder taper. It's the exact opposite of what I've seen on long stroke engines when tearing down and measuring. Usually I seem to see more taper close to the crank or even worse double taper with the wear at half stroke, I've always felt that was due to rod angularity on a long stroke engine, it puts a good deal of side load on the piston. Another thing that can cause excessive oil consumption is a bad CDR. Mines bad and haven't had the time to order a new one, oil gets past it and up into the tube and is sucked into my turbo. I got around it with a cone shaped flow restricter that causes oil mist to drop out of suspension with the air stream, an idea I got from the breather vent on my 911 oil tank.
