Question Oil Consumption 2008 Accord EX-L

This is my first vehicle to ever consume oil... I just purchased it as a used vehicle from Honda... I shortly after did the product update. In the 2100kms I've owned it, it has consumed 0.5 litre of oil. I've topped it up with Castrol GTX 5w20 conventional oil for now... my next oil change should I bother doing the Honda consumption test? I have 1 year left of powertrain warranty and 3 years of pre-owned extensive comprehensive warranty.

Has anyone found that switching to synthetic oil has helped AFTER already consuming oil? Can it get worse?

It looks like that converts to .52 quarts over 1300 miles. Yes, I'd do the oil consumption test. Won't hurt anything.

I did the oil consumption test for 5 visits, consumed about 0.8L per 1500kms. Honda authorized a Piston Update... new rings and pistons are going in this week... driving a Nissan Ultima in the mean time. Hard to go from 5MT to CVT... lol.
