LS engines use small, low tension piston rings to reduce friction, increase power and fuel economy. Therefor, they use oil! Its a common weel known and accepted fact. Probably will use more synthetic oil then conventional oil since synthetic flows better/easier. Anyway, keep an eye on your oil levels. Mine has gone down over 2 quarts before oil light came on!

I had it come on twice in the 2 years I had my SS. Both times I needed to add a quart or less. This was on 5k mile interval oil changes with Mobil1. LSx engines tend to go through some oil as mentioned.
