Are you sure its burning the oil? Is it smoking blue smoke? Typically if its not smoking but oil level is going down its the valve cover gasket. There are o rings around the spark plugs that tend to leak. Oil will gather around the plugs and in some cases follow the plugs threads down into the head causing a light blue smoke at times.
