Re: Excessive Oil Consumption

I guess my big question is would be, would synthetic oil be better in an excessive oil consuption issue?
I know nothing about these engines but I do know that my VW Fox burned a quart a month of dino 10W30. Switched to 5W40 synthetic and now I burn maybe half a quart between oil changes. Big difference, though how much of that is viscosity and how much is synthetic, I don't know. Far safer than snake oil additives, though!
