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.

I have the same problem. '06 GP GXP with only 25K miles. Found this when I was searching on the net.
Doesn't sound good. I am going to take mine in.

Thank you very much! I am currently working with on dealership on my engine oil usage.
I've been going in 1k and 1.5k intervals and they agree it's been running low but "we're still going to monitor it."
