Sorry to argue, but "subaru 'brand' oil" is Idemitsu. Your dealer may stock Mobil1, but thats not the norm and is frowned upon because of the M1 stigma.
Bob is the oil guy says the stock Idemitsu is great stuff. I get free oil changes for life so my oil will lilely be the factory stuff unless I'm too far away to get to the dealer. So far my 3/13 build date XV hasnt burned any noticeable amount of oil since new. I did a thorough break in and also drained the factory fill at 200-300 miles. Its great not having to watch the dipstivk like a hawk.
