    These engines arent known for excessive oil use although there have been a few cases of this.
    Any noticeable leaks?
    I assume your changing the oil yourself and not using a shop that could be responsible for servicing it to low.
    How do the plugs look?
    Thats a good bit of oil to burn and should leave signs on the plugs if it's burning.
