Last year between maintenance(4,000 miles) have been down 3 quarts of oil.
Of course idiots light does not come on to warn me.
But how can you be using oil of that amount without fouling plugs.
There is no visable leakage under car and it does not show smoke or residue on exhaust?

1 qt per thousand is average usage. You should be checking every time you fuel the car.

If the red light comes on, you have damaged the motor from lack of oil pressure.
