If your car's cooling system is functional there's no reason to use a thicker oil in the summer. Your engine operates at the same temperature regardless once up to temperature. Use Mobil 1 0w40

In my VW GTI with a 2.0L turbo motor I get consistently 27-28 mpg with 5% to 0% highway. Great immediate torque and great gearbox (DSG) makes for an efficient car. 0 to 60 is probably 6.5 seconds.

No doubt you are burning oil, likely worn, or gummed piston rings.. let's face it your engine has 285k miles at this point drive it til it dies, keep the oil topped off. My Saturn burns oil at the same rate as your Subaru roughly.. a little slower.
