If you have an oil-burning Forester and have not reported the MY on this poll, ease do so.

Hi my 2012 forester is burning more than a quart if oil every 1000 miles this is rediculous I'm hoping that the dealer makes good on it but I'm sure I'm gonna have to put up a fight.

My vote.

All engines consume a "measurable amount" of oil. My 2012 Forester will use .5 quarts per 7,500 miles. This is tolerable and acceptable since oil rings on a piston do not wear perfectly since there is both vertical and uneven lateral stress placed on the piston as it powers down into the cylinder. Until an engineer figures that one, piston rings will wear unevenly. Some will wear better than others. The worst ones will consume oil at an unacceptable rate and will qualify to vote in your poll.
