Expert:  Gary replied 6 months ago.

if consumption is more than 1 quart in 1000 miles is the magic number

it sounds like they keep over filling the oil on purpose to show the oil level is not burning as much as the car is

if your persistent with them they will end up doing the rings

" If consumption is 1 one quart every 1,000 to 3,000 miles, the company may require more tests and higher levels of approval before offering repairs. If the consumption rate is more than 1 quart per 1,000 miles, Honda will rebuild the engine to replace the piston rings and may replace the engine block, if it is also damaged. "
