I purchased a 2010 WRX a little over a month ago and now have about ~2000 miles on it. I religiously check my oil at each gas fill up and at my last one, I noticed that I was a little low (not too much....maybe 1/4 of the way down from the F mark). I recently took a longer than usual road trip before checking the oil and everything looked to be good, but it went down afterwards. I know this is within the acceptable range for oil consumption, but is it normal for the motor to burn through any oil during the "break-in" period? Sorry if this has been answered before, but I tried searching. FYI: The oil that is in there is the original factory oil, I have not gotten my first oil change yet (I will at 3k).
Before I get flamed, yes I followed the break-in procedure . I was fairly gentle during the break-in, made sure to vary my RPMs, and only rev the motor when the motor oil is completely up to operating temperature.
