yes , I tend to use only,only pretty good oil in my DX.
5 qts every 7-8 weeks, in summer seems about right.

At that point I put the used stuff in a honda

I used 1 quart every 1000 on HD 20w50. Engine was rebuilt at 9k under warranty for oil usage. Five k later it still uses oil, and today when I changed the oil, it smelled of gas. Still using 20w50 until I get this issue straightened out, Warranty expires October 1st.

My street rod uses a good bit. I got the dealer to do an oil consumption study on er. I have to bring it by once a week to let them check the level and milage. Maybe were getting somewhere.
