Checked yesterday with ~450 miles since the last oil change and had 0 loss. I just started doing my own oil changes on this car as I can get the filters for free. So far so good.

There is no Signature Series 5W-40. If this is the new Full SAPS 5W-40, you could probably double that mileage including additional track time.

Get a used oil analysis from OAI testing.
