Default 2015 wrx burning oil??

Excessive blue smoke coming out of exhaust after acceleration.. I am catless but the blue smoke is way worse than it was a couple months ago. Oil level is at low mark by 3000 miles after oil change. Subaru claims that oil consumption test passed that there is no problem at this time... what are the possibilities ?

I also have Perrin sump restrictor on the car as well.

I have an appointment to get it looked at but i was hoping someone would have some insight in the meantime.

Keep tabs on the oil level yourself. You should be able to gauge it if indeed consumption is above normal. We just got a short block in our Crosstrek. I waited to 90k miles to have it checked and it failed spectacularly (well over double the amount considered excessive down) and then drove through the winter because snow tires. I change oil at 5k and the oil light has always gone on before oil change time. Do you find this?

Oh, also, did they say how far down your oil level was when they did the test or just say it passed. The number is 10 ounces in 1200 miles for fail.

If your compression and leak down tests come back good, it's probably the turbo.

I canít remember what the number was but it was just before winter when they did the test.
I donít know if this means anything but when I did the last oil change I only got about 3 1/2 quarts of oil that drained out.
