Default 2006 STI synthetic oil

2006 STI 62,000 miles. I never used synthetic oil. Can I starting using it now? Someone told me that using it now on my car will burn the oil a lot. I had 2006 nissan spec v before this car and started using synthetic oil after 50,000 miles on it. It did slowly burned the oil. I had to refill it after 2,000 miles on it. Im scared to use it on my STI now. Any advice? And I bought the STI 53,000 miles on it.

Im not an expert on Stis or cars but 62k isn't a lot of mileage , if the car wasn't abused, your not already burning oil and you changed that regular oil often enough it should be fine. The oils are compatible. Give it a try and monitor it.

There is no oil leak on my car. I didn't switch to synthetic yet... i don't race or anything but I do go once a press the gas little Just say i did switch to synthetic and just say it burns little... what do I do ? A friend of mine told me I add something with oil that will block the leak but thats all he knows. I don't have too many friends knows anything about this or STI.

Should i just change to synthetic oil and drive it for few days and change again to new synthetic oil? than might clean out the conventional oil? I ask the oil change place and it cost over 60 dollars. I can't afford that. but buying synthetic oil is cheaper
