Question about Buick Regal
The dealership is telling me this is normal consumption and I should just check the oil level every time I get gasoline. I didn't buy a new car to worry about oil levels.

Look for Castrol TWS 10W60 Motor Oil. This car should not burn so much oil, you need to use a different kind. It is recommended by BMW as well. I also heard the VANOS isnt an issue anymore, can be fixed with a different MAFF. Good luck!

SOURCE: Excessive oil consumption
synthetic oil has smaller molecules which is why it is good for new cars - it gets into more places. it sounds like your car has been taken good car of but it still has some miles on it. what is happening is the synthetic is getting past the oil ring on your pistons (dont worry) and a small amount is getting burned off (not enough to fail emissions or notice in the exhaust) this happens just because of old age (being anything over 60000)i would try switching to a conventional oil at least for one oil change and that will solve your problem because the bigger molecules in the conventional oil will have a much harder time getting past the oil rings on the pistons.
