You'll need to have it diagnosed to know for sure, but there are a few things that cause an engine to use oil. They normally involve oil leaking externally or an internal oil leak into the compression chamber. Here are some possibilities: 1. External Oil Leakage 2. Worn piston rings 3. Worn Valve Guides 4. Malfunctioning PCV System
