It seems my oil consumption has slowed down after 1k miles. I have 2200 miles on M1 10w-30. The first 800 miles, I used 1/2 a qt of it. Is there a reason why oil consumption would slow down at some point?
i have noticed that if I check my oil when the engine has just been shut off, I will show it being low about 1/2 qt. But if I check it in the AM, its normal.
Syntheic oils can hang up for some time and you may not get an accurate reading. If its a 1/2 qt low, I would not top off untill I checked it cold to see.
Also, some oils are more volatile, will burn off (from the heat of combustion not past the rings) a certain amount right away and then stablize. Pertroleum oils are good for this but Mobil 1, I have not idea but could be the case.

Did you keep the old PCV valve? If you did, clean off the smaller end and try to blow through it. I did that on mine and barely got a squeak through it! Thoroughly clogged. The new one was easy to blow air through.
