I was wodering if my oil burning problem is likely to result in a failed emissions inspection (MA) eventually. The car needs clutch that will cost 50% of car's value. I'd like to drive until the wheels fall off but will get a new car ibefore clutch f inspection failure likely. The extent of the burning is I am down to almost nothing at 4k miles even with MaxLife oil.

If you are consuming oil most emission places will not even test the vehicle if there is blue smoke present from the exhaust.

Do you ever see blue smoke come out of your tailpipe? If you do, you probably will not pass. However, you could switch it up to a thicker oil grade so that you consume less oil. You may be able to pass the test that way depending on how severe the problem is.
