Default Where is all of my oil going?!

I have a 2003 WRX everything in my 1999RS. Not that the swap matters, but I am constantly losing oil. I will fill it up and drive a few weeks, maybe a month and a half, then check my oil and it is LOW. Like dangerously low. I mean a quart below the fill line. I am not dripping any. No puddles on the driveway or the engine anywhere. Don't see any leaks anywhere and I am not burning any that I can tell. So where is it all going?

What brand of oil? How many miles does it take to drop to this level? What are your driving conditions?

Use Mobil 1 full synthetic. Takes about 4 to 5 weeks I guess. Not really sure. I just know I add some, and a month or so later, its almost gone.

What he's saying is drain the oil and put in some good oil (Shell Rotella T6 or Mobil1 0w 40 available at any WalMart) and report back in a few weeks with an update. Assuming you're using Mobil1 5w30 currently. Or just search the 100's of oil related threads already available....Scotty cracks me up probably cause I haven't pissed him off yet....

Out the tail pipe.

If there is/are no leaks, no dripping, no puddles, then it is going out the tailpipe.

Are there any oil leaks or wetness on the bottom of the engine and chassis?

Maybe do a power wash of the engine bay, particularly the bottom end and chassis around the engine bay. Then see if any oil shows up.

How many miles before you have to add oil?
