    Hey all,

    I have a 2013 Crosstrek and the low oil light came on today. I have a super small leak and need to top it off every few months between oil changes. I only had 0W40 and added about a quarter of a quart to the car. I did not realize it was 0W40 until after the fact. 0W20 is the suggested oil and what I normally use.

    Is it ok to drive for a few days probably less than 200 to 300 miles in total until I can do a full oil change?

    Cheers!
