As such, according to the dipstick – my oil level dropped one quart in fewer than 200 miles. There were no problems with oil level up to that point.

I added one quart of 0W20, and the light turned off after a few miles.
Wow, that really sucks!

Just an fyi, I've had my oil level vary by a quarter of a quart when checking it while parked in two different areas back to back.
