What do you consider a "fast rate"?
VW officially feels that 1 quart per 1000 miles is a normal rate of consumption.
Changing the oil at the proper intervals and using thicker oil can help.
If it's more than 1 quart per 1000 miles, the oil is changed often, and you are already using a thick oil you may need to have a compression or leak down test done to pinpoint the problem.
