Hello wrenchmonkey-- Manufacturers would call this normal usage. I know of one brand that told a customer that it was normal for his car to burn a quart every 800 miles. What you can do is check for leaks. If you don't see any drips on the floor of your garage, have a mechanic look at it. Good luck from Bovan.
