if there are no oil leaks then the car is burning it- bad rings or valve guides- the oil is going SOMEWHERE-

I believe it is just something you have to expect with a manual Acura rsx type-s. I have an 06 type-s and it has done the same thing since I bought it. I did make the switch from regular oil to synthetic; THIS HELPED A LOT. Also if you constantly go high in the RPM range before shifting, it will cause you to burn more oil.
