    I am thinking that 2TR FE is screaming for very high quality oil, especially when we get beyond 100k miles, and desire great durability.

    For example Amsoil SS 5W20 is slightly thicker with a very low NOACK.

    Mobil 1 ESP 5W30 is thick, with a very low NOACK.

    Pennzoil Platinum Euro L 5W30 is thick, meets certain Mercedes specs, strongly suggesting piston ring cleanliness, and is one third the cost of the first two oils.

    I am being very specific about formulas here. A friend with a 2TR FE ran regular Mobil 1 for 500k miles, and he still had oil consumption ~150k miles.

    Be ready for some sluggishness. "S" Mode or MT ftw.

    Engine that I rebuilt for my turbo build, bought off Craigslist with blow gasket. Look familiar?

    This engine could also benefit from a catch can, intake side of head thick with oil.

    .5 qt per 1k miles is still In spec so Toyota says, if it just started it might not have been evident. Especially since it's intermittent to start. I thought for the longest time it was normal because it was so little between changes and then all at once it was gone lol

    I gotta say I've got 240,000 on my 2.7 in and 09.i've used 5w and now 10w/30 Mobil 1 since the 2nd change.contrary to what the other guy said
    it burns no oil still.gotta think these motors need synthetic oil to live.

    I just bought some PUP 5w30 for dirt cheap (after rebate) due to its super duper cleaning abilities. I figure I was going to buy more synthetic 5w30 anyway and instead of the usual M1 $10 rebates I'll just grab this one, and hope it does some cleaning of my pistons to (perhaps) help fight the (potential) piston ring coking issue: https://www.amazon.com/Pennzoil-550045201-Ultra-Platinum-Synthetic/dp/B01M266FWZ
    Receipt must be dated between 10-1-2018 and 12-31-2018.

    Well I tried the valvoline blue restore 10w-30 at my last oil change, which was mentioned by taco woodeye. It sounds like the blue restore is specifically designed to reduce oil consumption in cummins motors that are prone to oil control ring problems. I got it from ryder fleet services for like $75/gallon. 600 miles in I'm 1.25 quarts low - so far it hasn't reduced consumption. I'll add more until the remainder of my second gallon is gone and see if giving it more time to work helps reduce consumption.

    Another wrinkle- this morning when I fired my truck up it was running super rough and idling high and the check engine light was flashing slowly. I turned it off, fired it back up and it was running fine but the CEL was on solid. I scanned it and it was cylinder #1 misfire. Does this reveal anything about my oil burning issue? Maybe that plug is fouled from the oil burning? But why would the misfire go away if that was the case... I have noticed over the last couple years that every once in a while it idles kind of high and rough when I start it, but the CEL has never came on in that situation. Any thoughts?

    Intake valve seal on #1 maybe? No amount of snake oil will fix that if it is the case.

    Agreed. Valvoline Restore instructions do say to leave it there for a full OCI, though. I would not categorize this particular product as "snake oil." It is worth a shot before going to valve or valve stem seal replacement.
