Assuming you already checked for a leak, your car burning oil is a sign of your piston sleeves failing. When the piston travels up and down, oil is getting through to the combustion chambers (above the piston) where air and fuel is mixed and gets burned with the mixture. Is your exhaust smokey? A simple compression test will verify this, however the fix is an engine rebuild depending on severity and consumption rate.

How often should I change my oil?

Most people change their oil every 3000-3500 miles. Alot of late model cars are recommended to change every 5000 miles. I would do it every 3000 miles for regular oil & every 5000 if you use synthetic oil.

Gas consumption

Is this a new problem? If so, I'd check/replace the catalytic converter. They clog if bad gas gets into them. Performance is usually affected. If the car has alot of mileage, replace all the oxygen sensors...they affect fuel mix. Change your oil to a 5-20 oil. Change your air filter. Change your plugs if more than 70K miles. Check tire pressure (Mr. Obama is right!) Check wheel alignment by looking at tire wear. Repair any loose front end parts. Check brakes for excessive drag...does the vehicle stop straight???? Use Techron additive to clean fuel injectors following instructions. Finally, do you use your brakes alot? Fast starts? On/off the gas alot? Drive smoothly!
