A thread on "Another", forum, stated, a guy has been using oil from DAY1........has 17k miles on it, used mob 1 , tried Valvoline Syntec, same, then tried Royal purple..........Oil usage GONE, Zero, Zip , Nada.........
Anyone with this problem may want to try it .................FYI:)

Hummm .... or maybe the rings finally seated in like others have reported. Only way to know if the oil was the cause of curing the oil burning would be to switch back to Mobil 1 and see if it starts burning again. That would be interesting to see.

WelL

There is a problem, the RP he is using is not 100% Syn, and thus will not meet GM specs........BUT, they do make a 100% Syn, in their racing oils.........it would be worth a try......IF you have usage problems.
The thread is at C5 Tech
On www.CorvetteForum.com
See, isn't it nice.............we can play here like big boys..........:)
Thanks JC...............

NAPA sells Royal Purple....and i would say it's synthetic enough if it will fix your oil consumption problem....smile.
