Post your latest oil change

1 week and a half ago. Mobile 1 5w40 TDT with Wix filters in my '04 cavalier. noticed a little oil consumption every 3000-4000 miles thought id give it a try. I Have ran 5w30, 10w30, SAE30 oils in Mobile 1 5-30 10-30, M1-HM 5-30 10-30, Royal Purple 5-30,10-30 Kendall 30WT, Royal Purple SAE30, Pennz Platnium 5-30 and 10-30, Rotella T6 10-30, now M1 5W40 TDT. Ive read that these ecotecs are oil burners so hopefully the M1 TDT does the trick if not Amsoil will be the next step. For some reason I believe oil is splashing under the pistons and burning off so if the M1 TDT is good enough to run through a nice hot turbo I hope it would with stand the heat from under the pistons.
