Exessive oil comsuption is relative. One person think losing one quart every 600 mille is acceptable while another expects to drive 7,500 miles without any loss of oil. Most manufacturers indicate the loss of one quart every 1,000 to 3,000 miles is normal.
Check your spark plugs. They are good indicators of the engine consuming oil as a result of worn rings, worn cylinders, leaking valve guides, leaking valve stem seals, or leaking cylinder head gasket.
