Oil consumption, 1.5 qts per 1000 miles..

As the title says, my rig is eating oil, it doesnt leak a drop so obviously its burning it. I have 130k miles and it runs like a raped ape, sounds perfect and doesnt blow an blue smoke. i figure as dirty as these 7.3's are its hard to tell from looking at the exhaust or smelling it.. any thoughts?

i'll get back to you later. i have a few remedies but i forgot! i'll talk to the guys in the shop today. what i would do if i were you, i'd just change it with a decent pretty cheap oil, then just put a quart in every 1000 miles. if its burning it, your gonna have to tear into it to fix it most likely.

any chance the turbo seals are causing it to use the oil?

I know that my dad's 96 PSD didn't use any oil until he ran Rotella then it started to use about 2-3 quarts every oil change. Just a FYI

I have 320000 with about 2qt every 5000 miles with Delo, Rotella was a littel over 3qts. 130000 miles is nothing for that truck.

I don't buy that. I've been running Rotella for some time now and I haven't had to add oil between changes. I'm at 165,000. I'm a little over mileage on this change and I checked Sunday. It's still right at the line.
