Hello, I would like to see if I could give you a little bit of information to help you with this. The first thing you will need to do is find where the oil is going. Step one is to verify there are no external engine oil leaks. After that, you would want to remove the intake hose from the throttle body and check for any significant amount of oil that is sitting there which would indicated a faulty PCV valve. If that checks OK, You will want to see if after the car sits for a while, during first start up if there is a cloud of smoke that comes from the exhaust it would indicate that the valve seals are leaking. If all of that checks to be OK, you may be looking at excessive blow-by from worn piston rings/cylinder walls.
