GTO's burns oil?

Is that true that GTO's (from new) especially 05 and 06's burns about qt. of oil every 3000 miles?

I have read others posting their's do. Mine does not. I change every 5K and the level is still full.

Never lost any oil between 5000 mile oil changes. Maybey Gas and Tires but not Oil.

My 05 GTO never used a drop. My 06 C6 doesn't either.

My '05 did burn about a quart per oil change for the first 3-4 changes, about 10-12,000 miles. It has not burned anything significant since.

I understand that 1 quart in 3,000 miles in within GM limits, but mine hasn't used oil. Got 33,000 on an 05 yellow jacket.

oil use

my 05 does not use a drop of oil, I change it every 2 to 3 thousand miles and I use only ROYAL PURPLE oil....GM made a big mistake by putting in full synthetic oil at the factory,, Full Synthetic oil will NEVER let a new engine break in properly..on the day I took delivery of mine [ it had 4 miles on it ] I had the dealer change the oil and used MOBILE ONE non synthetic oil.. I did not put full synthetic oil in it till it had over 5000 miles on it
