OIL CONSUMPTION

2006 Toyota Rav4

Engine Mechanical problem
2006 Toyota Rav4 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 105600 miles

I just wrote in asking about high oil comsumption, and I am using 10W20 weight. Why do you think it is burning this much oil, and what is the advantage of using synth oil?

Thanks again

Oil consumption can mean many things, are you getting any smoke from the tailpipe(exhaust) blue smoke?

No, there is no blue smoke or leakage from undercarriage. I also looked at the engine, and don't see any oil leaking.
