Doesn't sound normal, is there any blue smoke when running the car or any smell of burning oil when you lift the bonnet.

Do you still have the plastic under tray on the car ? If so the oil will collect there and not drip down that quickly.

I'd check sump plug on properly, oil filter had no holes and is seated correctly,

Shine a torch down the left side of the engine between the airbox and cam covers, see if there's any puddles there, the gaskets weep but not enough to loose that much oik in such a short amount of time, also check the oil feed line to the turbo is ok and has no holes in.

Hundred quid roughly for a garage to do it, about 50-60 diy, to be honest it's worth paying somone as it's a pig.

That's the half moon that accompanies the cam cover gasket, they get hot and brittle and eventually perish.

At least it looks like something simple

No worries mate, do you have an independent subaru specialist ?

A main dealer would probably have your eyes out for this as it's simple enough, but access and the bits you have to remove are time consuming

Ah boo, easiest way is to remove plugs & leads remove airbox, Battery & washer bottle and loosen engine mounts then jack the engine up to gain access, there are a few other bits to remove aswell but that's the bones of it Www.importcarparts.co.uk your best bet, if your struggling or can't find it on the site give them a call they should have it

By topping it up, how much are you actualy putting in? would be a big puddle on the floor if rocker was leaking as much as it sounds like it is

 

1 Litre per 1000, 1 Litre per 100 miles?

Not sure how much topped it up to be honest didn't measure just pumped some out of works barrel,keeping eye on it now I know its leaking,hopefully be going in to be fixed next week

 

need to know how much tbh, up to 1L per 1000 miles is within subaru official limits and also may not be as much leaking as you think.
