oil for 2.0 tfsi

my eos has 5000km and was serviced at 3700km (2 years). On the service check list the long life oil control is checked, however now the oil is at the minimum level. Do you think this consuption is normal and which oil do you recommend for the 147Kw engine? The manual only states VW codes...
Do you recommend to go to VW so they can add long life oil (thus falling in the vw "trap")?

Thank you

I have a 2007 2.0T with 10,000 miles mix of 50-50 city and highway driving. Oil was changed by VW dealer with Mobil 1 at 5000 miles I have added 1 quart about 7800 miles so I am satisfied with the oil consumption. Oil consumption can be higher if one does not follow the VW engine break in advice about how to drive the car the first 1000 miles or so.
I just changed my TFSI 2.0T oil at 10.5 K miles and am giving Mobil 1 Energy Saving 0W-30 synthetic a try this time. Mobil claims it gives 0.2 US MPG improvement over their standard Mobil 1 oil formulation. I am taking a near zero risk as 0W-30 Mobil 1 is not on the VW approved list. Just took a 150 mile highway drive over a route I drive often since the oil change and per the MFD it looks like the 0.2 MPG improvement is real.
