Oil is getting into the spark plug tube and it is via a bad valve cover gasket. Replacing the gaskets should solve the peoblem.
When there is excessive oil around the spark plug, it can result in misfigin and poor performance. Have th oil leak repaired and retest.
The oil consumption is more likely to be due to worn valve seals or other areas of leakage. The VTEC valve gasket is one of the more common cause of oil leakages.
