Hi All,
Just a tip,CHECK YOUR OIL REGULARLY,the engine is designed toburn oil under hard useage.Just topped up mine after 2600 miles and it had used just overa litre.The grade is 0w20 which is fully synthetic.

Thanks for the heads up, I was wondering if the on-board computer checks the oil level for you or do you have to manually check with the dip stick?

I've had tonnes of Toyotas and this one then will be first that has used any oil. I've never had to top up, ever. And, yes, I check the fluid levels every week. It would have to be 0W20. The stuff's hardly cheap.
It is considered acceptable by Subaru for their engines to consume 1ltr of oil per 1000 miles.

Having said that my 2.5 impreza engine has never had to be topped up in 3.5 years, but I know of several that have.

I guess it's down to driving style

2000 miles done needed a litre of oil, so check regularly
