you probably have an oil leak; check your valve cover gaskets, timing cover gaskets, look in ur spark plug wells and see if there is any oil down there, check your oil pressure switch, your vacuum pump, your oil filter housing, the oil pan gaskets, oil level switch, and last but not least ur alternator bracket gasket.. i doubt your car is burning that much oil. I was nearly doing the same until I changed driver side VCG and spark plug tubes, and then more recently my oil pressure switch and vacuum pump O rings.
