    BUY the RX8. Rotary engines are typically heavier on fuel than a four-cylinder engine, and your V8 comparison is probably correct. They have also been a little heavier on oil than a piston engine, but that's not a problem. The RX8 is a high-performance sports car and needs oils that protect it against hard driving.
