    I wouldnt be too concerned OP. The car's oil measuring/metering device is lacking to say the least. It maybe innovative but it sure isn't reliable. There are times when the reading takes over 20 minutes to complete! I know many times (I guess not too many lol, only have done 7 oil changes on mine) when I would get a full reading after wating the 10 or more minutes, drive to my destination and when I check the oil again it is no longer at max but nearing min. It's the measuring device that's mostly at fault but yes some gets dumped into the pcv system, that's where some is lost. The rest, if any, would be through your turbos.

    Hard driving leads to consumption. I burned thru a full QT in 500 miles in the area of tail of the dragon.

    Changing to 5w-40 helped a bit.
