Default Oil Consumption Survey

This past Sunday when I pulled into the driveway the low oil level light came on. Checked it and it was at the bottom of the dipstick. I added some Mobile1 I had in the garage to top it off and when my wife took it to work Monday the light went off. This was with 4200 miles since the last oil change. It took about 2/3 of a quart to bring it close to full. I had my appointment today at the dealership and had it checked over. The service writer had a look on his face when I was telling him what was going on that indicated that he knows of a problem and didn't want to tell me what hoops I have to jump through. After they found nothing wrong he said they will have me do an oil consumption test over the next 6000 miles. I have to take it in every 1500 miles and have them check the level and document the usage. So I guess I won't know anything for another year as we only have 8200 miles on it in 13 months and went on a couple trips.

Anyone else 'participate' in this?
