Well, at 155 K miles, I am suffering serious oil burning.  It all started 
when I switched over to synthetic oil, though, that could be coincidence.
Roughly  1qt per tank of gas - so bad the tail pipe is black and oily 
(though oddly, only 1 of the 2).
Switching from amsoil to Mobil made little difference.  Maybe dino oil will 
cure it!
Have not had time to look into the problem yet, but just thought I would 
share my misery.
Considering that the clutch throwout bearing is complaining, and the front 
brakes need completely rebuilt, I hope this is not the straw that broke my 
I really like the car...
