Skoda Superb using lots of oil - what should I do?

I own a 2011 Skoda Superb Estate 4x4 1.8 diesel. It has only done 40,000 miles but is using an excessive amount of oil. I have been in touch with Skoda UK they have suggested that I arrange for a diagnostic check with the local dealership, which I will do. I have some concern that if they recommend changing the engine I will be replacing the it with another with potentially the same issues. Can I demand a different engine?
You can't ask for Skoda to replace a 1.8 with a 2.0 and in any case the 2.0 CDAA has precisely the same problem. You can demand a reduction of the bill because this is a common problem. You should do this via the dealer from whom you bought the car.
