Oil Consumption with 0w-20 Grade Oil?
I just got back from a marathon holiday road trip of about 3500 miles. This morning, I checked the oil level and found it below the "add" hole on the dip stick. Its been about 4600 miles since my last change (9400 miles on my car) and I was getting ready to change it anyway.
One quart in 4600 miles isn't outrageous, but it isn't what I'd expect either. I'm wondering if the 0-20 oil that Mazda has spec'ed for N.A. model cars isn't a tad on the light side? I'll keep a closer eye on my oil level from now on, that's for sure.
Has anyone else seen consumption in the one quart per 4-5k mile range? Anyone tried running 0-30 or 5-30 oil in their 2.5?

Hopefully, some new owner is driving the wheels off her right now! They got a good one.
