OH,THAT'S MORE IN LINE WITH WHAT IT SHOULD BE. THAT,S A TICK OVER A QT. PER 1000 MI. HOW MANY MI. ON VAN? WHAT KIND OF OIL&SAE? PROB. NOT GOING TO SEE A LOT OF SMOKE COULD BE CONSUMING THAT MUCH. SURE IT'S NOT LEAKING? DOES IT SMOKE AT ANY TIME,LIKE AT START UP IN THE AM. AFTER SITTING OVER NIGHT? CHECK OUT PCV SYSTEM INCLU. FRESH AIR BREATHER. OTHER THAN THAT I DON'T KNOW.
