uhhmm... i think it will last longer if your never let the oil level drop below low mark. think of it this way, you added x amount of fresh oil to replace x amount of oil that burned off between OCI vs using same fixed z amount of oil in the OCI? that will bump the oil life by little
yeah... i burned 1qt per 2000 mi in my 11 Forester. I know it sucks to have to check and fill it up. But, that's life, you will never get what you always want.
