OP, you need to start checking your oil once a week, after the car has sat on level ground for a long time, like 4+ hours. I do mine after I come out from work.
Top it off as needed.
We went through this the other day.
These car use oil at different rates. I can drive 1500 miles and not use any oil, then the next 500 miles the level is down a bit.
Some times on the drive to VT it will use oil, next weekend it won't. I'll check it and top it off here went I leave work today and then again Saturday after skiing in the parking lot at Okemo.
Last weekend up and back it didn't use any oil. The previous weekend it used a little on the drive up to VT.
219,000miles 5/2012 ej257 short block, 8/2011 installed VF52 turbo, @20.8psi, 280whp, 300ftlbs. CHECK your oil, these cars use it.
