My Ford Ranger with 180K miles on it doesn't even do that. WOW, that can't be good.

Did you ever have the p0420 code? I had that code and had to have my stock headers replaced on my 03...then ended up having to replace my engine (under warranty) because they did a oil consumption test and I was burning about the same as you.

Some old school V8's like the 302 burn some oil (mine burned a quart every 3-5000) but your engine shouldn't be. I'd say there's a problem.
