Valve cover gasket(s) or other , leaking onto exhaust and burning off before it hits the ground? Any smoke on first start-up? How many miles in 3 mos.? Proper viscosity oil being used?
i would bring it to a shop that perform test to find out your oil leak and maybe compression test also.
How many miles are you driving in those two months? The oil is probably being burned by the engine. This is normal. You add oil as necessary.
