If no leaks are to be found,and no oil in radiator,the only place it can be throwing that much oil is out the exhaust,check the tail pipe for black sute,some time,s they will not throw the oil until at high rpms,going down the road.

It does have sum black sute in the tail pipe! So ur saying it wouldn't smoke until it's at a higher rpm possibly?

Yes,driving down the road you would not see the smoking,and if you found sute,there is the oil you are loosing.
