Wow, 125 miles!

If there are no apparent leaks, then it is burning it, you may not be able to see it.

Have a compression test performed to test rings, otherwise could be valve stem seals need to be replaced.
Do you notice any blue smoke on initial startup in morning for a few seconds? This would indicate valve stem seals.
