I think we need to re adjust our way of looking at things. Has anyone ever had a car that went 7500 miles between oil changes? I dont agree with subarus oil burning allowance but thats the extreme. In reality most of our cars burn 1/4 qt every 2000 or so that does sound acceptable. I honestly dont want to hear any "but mine never burnt a drop" because they dont know what they are talking about. They went to super lube for oil changes and hardly ever checked their oil and couldnt tell you where the washer fluid resivour was located.
In rare cases some will burn alot more like DamnNissan but 99% of us have a good engine. And notice his car has been burning oil from the start. Not some garbage that started at 6k miles and appears then re appears
