How Much Oil Do you Use?

I'm curious what others are seeing for oil consumption, and also what kind
of mileage your looking at on said car. As it is, I think I need to put in
about a quart every 1500 miles. ODO's at 196k. The car doesn't leak (and
yes Bernie, I've cleaned the engine, and regularly monitor for fresh leaks:)
but I do get some smoke on startup in the AM's. All signs see to point
towards valve stem seals.
Of course VW/Audi say a quart every 1500 miles is acceptable, but then I
think they might also use that number to get out of warranty work.
So curious what others are seeing. I'm looking at a timing belt pretty
soon, and I'm also debating on taking the head off at the same time and
replacing valve guides and seals concurrently. Definetly a cost benefit
issue. It'd take a lot of oil to balance this debit.
