There's no evidence that babying the car when new will reduce oil consumption. In fact, there are hypotheses that pass the engineering sniff test that say pushing the car hard and having the engine either under load or vacuum at all times is the way to break it in. Given load and vacuum is what pushes the rings to the cylinder walls, I tend to think this makes sense.I broke mine in "gently" with all the aspects of accel and decell and no problems yet - but of course I only have 2200 miles as of now. Seems C&D oil usage spiked after 20k miles.
For my first 1000 miles I made sure the car was either accelerating or decelerating as much as I could; highway driving was between 50 and 80 and back in gear, constantly. I did my first track day at ~1100 miles and my second at ~2200.
In my last 2000 miles I've done 100+ minutes at COTA and the balance just tooling around. I'm about a quart low which I think is pretty darn good given these engines are meant to consume some oil.
