When running you can smell oil burning and it went through 2 quarts of oil in 3 houra
Expert:  TIMOTO replied 1 month ago.

The most common reason is the oil level is overfilled. This is a dry sump motor with a remote oil tank. You must check the oil level after the engine has been run for 10 minutes and the oil level in the tank has stabilized.

If you are checking the oil level correctly then the next most likely cause is a poor seal on the piston rings.
