Re:V8 Oil consumption

I have a 93 with 52K and I have to add at least a quart between changes of
3.5K.  I talked with the dealer and they were unaware of higher than
average consumption.  I worried for 15k but now I just add when it gets
low.  BTW the manual says 2 quarts low based on the dipstick marks.  Mine
is closer to 1 quart however.
