I don't have any oil burning.. and I'm pushing a bit more than stock hp.

My car has almost 40,000km's now.. Using sythetic since 17,000k.


my cousin's STI burned synthetic (mobil1), but then changed to Castrol syntec and stopped burning..


hard to say what it is..


good luck.

how much are you burning? I burned over a litre every 3000km and the dealer wouldnt do anything. It was still under bumper to bumper. You had better log the oil loss every interval and take it in for warranty if its a lot.
