150, even 200 is nothing for a modern engine. Given that it isn't beat and neglected.

I'm counting on mine lasting that long or longer and with mystery oil changes the first 90,000 miles

Same here.

I've owned it since 32,000 and it still runs like the day I brought it home.

It's probably eating it through the PCV system. Mine will burn a least 1qt in 6K, much of it gets caught in the catch can but some still gets through.

I feel I need to give my wk a good wash too. I just spray it with soap and water since I got it 6 years ago

A little off topic: Can you clay bar the head lights, windshield and windows? I have a medium grade clay bar.
