      I got a mild headache, but that I could manage. What I couldn't take was being irrationally pissed off about literally EVERYTHING. I now know what PMS must feel like :laugh:

      Care to expound upon why? Genuinely curious. I guess all I can say that is a FACT is the Blackstone analyzed the factory fill on that FB20 after those miles and got those results. Knowing the oil...

      It's not as much a warm fuzzy feeling from their recommendation as much as it is Subaru designed their motor, and some of them are having high oil consumption and others aren't. They have a lot more...
