But when I switched over to Quaker State (and now Pennzoil), it stopped eating oil. I found this really odd considering it's not like oils are significantly different from each other.
Mobil makes several different Mobil 1 5W30. By specs alone it seems the Mobil 1 ESP 5W30 would be the best against oil consumption. Maybe worth a try if you use Mobil 1 5W30 and are experiencing oil burn. Another Mobil oil to consider is the Mobil 1 0W40 (European Formula).
