My girlfriend just picked up a 2017 Subaru imprezza woth 40,000 miles on it. It has the flat 4 engine. It’s still under warranty and Subaru recommends full synthetic for 6,000 miles. I’m generally a pennzoil guy, but for such a short interval I’m wondering if going to something cheaper. What say you?

Pennzoil with a mail in rebate is cheap enough.

Dexos 1 Gen 2 works well for 6k OCI. Pick one with a low VI content and you're on your way.

QSUD, cheap and full synth.

You might want to get a filter other than the OEM such as Wix 57055 to help with the dry start. The OEM filter has a nitrile ADBV instead of silicone and doesn't hold the oil well between stop and start. I have a friend with a '19 impreza and I find it is loud for the first few seconds with OEM filter.

Hm. My FB25 has the dry start too. I just bought one of those filters!

So, how much you want to save? Pennzoil Platinum is like $22 for 5qt. If that is not cheap than maybe public transportation?

Here you go, base price sourced from Walmart/Amazon (and ignoring rollbacks, discounts, and rebates):

5 QT jugs:

$19.97: Quaker State Ultimate Durability
$21.47: Valvoline Advanced Full Synth
$24.97: Pennzoil Platinum
$25.47: Mobil 1 Advanced Full Synth
$25.97: Castrol Edge

Pick from one of the above and go crazy...
