SOURCE: what oil for my 1995 Subaru Legacy 250T?

I know I will get some argument on this one, but regardless of what manufacturers recommend, the best possible lubricant is a good synthetic. They far exceed any manufacturers needs in both lubricity long life and resistance to thermal changes. they do not burn off or form deposits readily and work in any temperature climate. as far as rating, a 10-40 or 50 works for everything. With synthetics those #s are almost a decoration on the can because in reality they cover a far larger span. Personally I would not use mobil1 (too much additive package not enough real stuff) on the other end, amsoil is one of the best (they even offer a 0w50 oil)
Whatever you use make sure you keep it clean. A good oil filter is essential and if extending oil change intervals, you can just change filter and any oil lost.
I know I've ranted, but the actual lab testing results and notes I've made over the years is far longer!
good luck whatever you decide on!

2001 Subaru Legacy 2.5L failed emissions BADLY in HC GPM 6.3 (1.2 Limit) & CO GPM 189.1 (15.0 Limit) NOx Good! NO check engine light. What do I check?

The first to-do item is read the ECU for any codes. An error does not always turn on the CE light.
6.3 HC means lots of hydrocarbons in the exhaust. This could be running rich so check the oxygen sensor(s). Also check the coolant temp sensor (symptom is hard starts, esspecially when cold. Is the air cleaner filter dirty? If you don't know when it was last replaced, replace it. A dirty filter causes rich mixture.
The catalytic converter could be burned out. This can happen if too much unburned HC gets into it.

A 2001 can be expected to have done 200,000+ km. Could be worn valve guides are letting too much oil into the cylinders. This also affects the catalytic converter. The fix is pull the heads off and have them refurbed.

2005 Subaru Legacy GT

I suggest you to have a ELM327 OBD2 with bluetooth connection (around 10-25$ on internet stores) + torque app to your phone. cheap and works just fine for checking engine error codes, and resetting malfunction lights. I think you were lucky to find correct answer on the internet, because without any further inspection they all are nothing else but lucky guesses. (and changing different sensors randomly based on guesses willcome very expensive.) If you watch this video it explain why in situation like you have is hard find correct answer to a specific problem.
