Time to take it to a shop, They can test to see if it's getting into the cylinders. Check the oil on the dipstick. If it looks like a chocolate milkshake, get it fixed before the engine needs replacing.

It's also possible to have a small leak in a hose, or hose connection, that you don't notice, because the engine heat is evaporating it as it comes out.

I had a leak in the reservoir that completely drained my rad. Check to see if the seals around your turbo pump is leaking... and hope that it isn't because that's big bucks to repair.
