    Re: your sticky thread

    Perhaps it's time to mention the oil burning in certain 2.5L engines, and the common rate of consumption in the 3.6L engines.

    My 3.6R is burning about 1 QT every 4300 miles, and I understand it not uncommon to burn oil in that engine. However, the 2.5L Outbacks are selling way more units, and it appear people are seeng several QTs between 7500 mile change intervals. (My wife included...)

    Most recently, on the board, someone posted that Subaru is "fixing" the issue by lowering to oil level sensor to detect at .5QTs Lowe, and flashing the firmware to support the new sensor. (For the 2.5i....)

    Hey AO River,
    I'm coming up on my first oil change and would like to get that manual you have.

    Thank you, fluffhead48
