I will drive for 30 minutes or more at consistent highway speed and smell it inside can with windows down. I know car is burning oil as I see blue smoke from exhaust pipe upon exportation, but this, does not explain this particular issue, HELP! Thx in advance.

Could be rings or valve guide seals. A wet and dry compression test will verify the rings.
