Mobile 1 every 3000 miles is what i use. I already put a catch can on, so hopefully that'll keep it from getting worse.

I order a catch can I order from ebay for less than $40 right after reading some of these issues. I installed it when I did first oil change. Upon second oil change, I drained catchcan and there was about 6oz of motor oil that was kept from going into valves. So it does work and my engine still feels great.
There's a difference between knowledge and wisdom..

I wonder how much oil made it through that can...mine cost a little more than that, but the reviews (RX brand) are stellar.
