If you are not using oil at all then you probably put to much in. If you have added a oul canister it will show you just how much oil you use. If you dont have one it just burns off as it goes threw your intake. Ask someone that has one and they will tell you. There are videos on itUmmmm... NO. An engine in very good shape should not burn .5 qts every 5K unless you are beating the heck out of it and reving the engine very hard to redline. 37k miles on the Jeep and 5qts puts it at the top of the hash and 3k - 6k later it's still right at the top of the hash.
