I CHANGE OIL BETWEEN 3000 AND 4000 MILES, OR ABOUT THE TIME WHEN THE OIL LEVEL IS DOWN FROM FULL.
Down from full?? Change it at 3,000 miles regardless! He mentions it doesn't leak anything, so if it'* down from full then he'* burning it...

It is expected of most cars per GM that you will use approximately 1/2 quart every 3K

I was going to say the exact same thing, Bill, but didn't want this to get into a pissing match!

Unless they leak it (which none of my cars do), there is no change in oil level every 3,000 miles.
