It is a common track/AutoX practice to add in an additional 0.5L to reduce/eliminate lifter tick, as when REALLY pushing these cars, they tend to get a bit oil starved, but that does in NO WAY 'cause the motor to use more oil'.

Aside from these limited applications, no, you really do NOT need more oil, just use the correct weight for your climate.
Its says it right in the owners manuel. Don't over fill the oil this will cause the motor to use up more oil resulting in you having to keep filling it up. Not in those exact words but somewhere along those lines.

Sort of, I suppose. More a case of "you're an idiot if you overfill".

This thread is 7 years old. It was revived by someone who took the time to search for their issue.

Mania is still a pointless dick.

Did I cover all the relevant points?
