If you are going to take this trip there are a couple things I would do before going. First, is change the oil just before you leave. You should do this even if you are not burning oil but you want to make sure your oil is full. Then I would buy a case of oil and bring it with you. Every time you fill your tank, check your oil and top off as needed. Next I would replace your spark plugs because when you are burning oil, it leaves a residue behind and this can foul a spark plug. Last, I would get a good quality fuel system cleaner and run it through the fuel system. This will clean your injector tips from any of this same residue that gets left behind from the oil burning in the combustion chamber.
Lastly, I need to mention that this can do long term damage to the catalytic converter because the oil will overheat the material inside causing it to prematurely fail. There is no way to know when this will happen but if continued use in this nature, it will fail.
Please tell me if you have more questions. Thanks
