Give it some time. They tend to use oil when brands are changed, until things settle down. This is why it is a good idea to find an oil, and then stay with it. I use the same oil in everything that I drive. No unexpected consumption issues.

I actually just bought a Performax TW from Menard's last week during their 11% rebate. I like it, it's a multifunction 3/8 or 1/2 inch. Is it cheap, yes. For the weekend warrior it does the job though.
