If I cruise 70-75 mph, I add 1-quart every 2-3 tanks. If I cruise 65-70, I add 1-quart every 4 tanks or so. I really like the car & have had very few problems.

Taurus LX V6 DOHC

I have to add about 1/2 to 1 quart of oil every other week. I drive the car no more than 3 times a week if not at all. Car does not knock or anything and i've not seen any oil spots under the car at all.
