Has anyone experienced oil loss after switching to the Amsoil synthetic? I appear to be using oil since changing over. I switched over at 3800 miles, second oil change, and since filling it and putting another 1,000 miles on it I have had to add another quart and I am still in the middle of the dipstick with the oil. I have checked for leaks and there appears to be no oil on the motor or filter and there has not been any oil on the ground. I did a really good job of draining the old oil but even new the motor is supposed to only take 5.3 quarts and I have put in almost 6 quarts. Any thoughts are appreciated.

No loss here, but I had to put in 5 quarts to get just over the middle of the hash marks. Or I would have had to add some later. Using 10-40

I ran Amsoil in an 1800 Goldwing for the Amsoil recommend change intervals. Somewhere around 45,000 it started burning oil. Ran pressure checks on the cylinders, and the back two were low. Had to trade the bike.
