This doesn't happen around town, only if I go a distance, like 150 miles. Then I have to add 2 quarts. There is no puddle under the car. I have a 2006 Toyota Corolla.

    Have it checked at a shop , where they can put it on a lift to check for signs of leaks , before you damage the engine. May be a leak that only happens under pressure and blows back off the bottom while driving and not accumulating enough to leave a puddle when stopped.
