Question about Jaguar Cars & Trucks
Difficult one this ,does it blow out blue smoke ? whats the mileage ? ,need more info to try to work it out as this can be tricky and could be ok ,now with natural oil it could be gummed up piston rings and just using a nice diesel/petrol oil designed for turbo diesel engines might help clean the ring grooves due to its detergent qualities but if this is a high mileage engine then it may be due for a rebuild ,most oil consumption is caused by worn rings/bores or valve guide seals .

After checking out alot of Honda/Acura forums I'm finding that many owners experience the same problem you are having. The best explanation I found was at 2carpros:
From what I'm reading, only way to stop the oil loss is a new engine. If your car is running fine, I'd hesitate to change anything with the engine and stock up on oil.

How many miles/km's you drive in those 3 month's ? oil consumption is normal ! Check when you first start the engine in the morning wetter or not you see a puff of blue smoke, if you see smoke , your valve seals are leaking.
1 liter oil each 2000km is normal.

I do not believe there is a fix by Chrysler. My van has 50000 and seems oil consumption is getting worse. It is either past the valve seals or the piston oil control ring. I believe Chrysler KNOWS ALL ABOUT THIS! If you google search this there are to many complaints! 1 quart every 3 thousand miles is not exceptable unless you are driving a model T!

hte oil has got to go somewhere,, check the pcv system could just be sucking up from the crankcase, otherwise it could be internal
