You are still on the original oil right? Certainly possible that your next change will see consumption go down. I would expect it would. I would maybe consider the Castrol 0W-30. Subaru Turbos seem to do well on that. On the other hand..oil is oil. I probably would go with the syn (even a group III like Pennzoil/QS/Castrol 5W-30, etc). Of course a Group IV or V (Redline, Motul, Amsoil, ) would be better. But in the end the differences are probably minuscule.

My top choice would be RedLine. Maybe you should consider a SubaruChase CC where 3% goes to Subaru anything.

I need to figure out a new signature.

I am still on original oil. Subaru uses all synthetic in the turbo vehicles now, and they suggest OCI's of 7500 miles. I will probably stick with 5000 miles OCI's. As for choice of oil, I don't have to pay for oil. My dealership gives every customer free oil changes for 3 years/36k miles. I am allowed 2 oil changes per year, but I am not even close to needing my first one yet. I am hoping that the oil consumption is just part of the engine break-in and that it will decrease over time. These cars seem to have an issue with oil passing through the PCV. Many people on the forums are finding oil all through the intake manifold.

Try to push for genuine Subaru Oil\ at your dealership I doubt that they will want to go that route but It doesn't hurt to push. Its about 30 bucks/gallon= not cheap. A t the very least you could find out what they are using. I get it free with Subaru Bucks.

I think they are required to use Subaru synthetic oil. I think that makes it easier for them to get paid when they do engine warranty work. I am requesting they fill my sample jar when they change the oil. I will bring it into the lab and do a full UOA.

Top Gear was actually decent this week. The Stig's lap in the Morgan was probably the 2nd best in recent memory (behind the V8 Atom.) It's worth downloading.

Are you talking about the british version? I really enjoy the American Version and that's on tonight.

Watching the STIG take that atom around the track last week was incredible. I wonder how many laps they let him run and if they take average.

Nice! We were originally going with the Grand Bavaro as well, but the agent messed up our quote, then couldn't get it back so we ended up with a suite at Punta Cuna instead, a bunch of throw-ins and saved a few hundred in the process. I'll take it! The rest of the wedding already has my wallet on a diet.
