Was just on that thread too. I changed mine to amsoil at 500 miles. The dipstick was between the two holes and I was 1/2 qt short of filling one of the gallon containers. So lost about 1/2 qt the first 500 miles. Heard that this is common during breakin and then stops. Will keep an eye on it just to make sure and to let you guys know if it burns any more.

With 4403 miles on the odo, the car hasn't burned a drop of oil. Not a single one. It's right on the dipstick where I filled it up to last time. So it does seem that though the engines burn anywhere from .5-1 quart of oil on break-in, they don't burn any more after that. At least, they shouldn't...
I did, however, find another teaspoon of oil in my JLT catch can. That's another teaspoon of oil that isn't in the intake now. Hooray! That's about 3 or 4 teaspoons now.
I'm the OP from the other thread.
Customer care called today to open a case. Hopefully they have good answers.
Time will tell.

If the lane to your right is empty, you're in the wrong lane!
If you just got passed on the right, you're in the wrong lane!
I put an oil separator on this past weekend. By the end of my commute today I would say a couple of teaspoons of oil were collected. I also put delete plates on and cleaned out my intake. It was nasty, and that was with only 22k miles on it. I was surprised how much oil makes it into the intake.
