Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat
Have your cam seals checked. Cam seals are a big problem on these cars and a major source of oil leaks. Another source is the oil cooler gasket but that doesn't appear to be the issue here as your leaks are well above the oil cooler. Good Luck.

SOURCE: oil usage
I would suggest using a full synthetic, 5W40. I would use a oil system cleaner, prior to the oil change. let it run in vehicle for 10 - 15 mins or so in the old oil, then i would do the change over, to the synthetic 5w40
