Now I'm wondering if a moderator should delete this entire thread, to keep the potential of misinformation from spreading on the internet. The title is rather hysterical, isn't it????
That is exactly my point. Trying to plot a trend via one data point is not only misleading, it is completely UNleading. It has no direction.

Confirm change and that it is refilled properly and see what happens over the next month. If no oil is consumed you know the dealership fed you a line. If you do start to see some usage you know have something to investigate more thoroughly...

If it used 4 qts it gonna keep using, an engine doesnt just magically decide its full...

Our '13 Jetta, sadly now gone, used maybe a cup of oil when brand new, then nothing at all for the next 26k. Something wrong. Either they didn't fill it with oil, or if they're using 505 instead of 507 maybe that's the problem.
