It's not that it's increasing consumption but that if you have that much oil being vaporized then you have something causing it in the first place. That seems like a lot of oil to burn up in the course of a day. If I lost that much oil daily in my 22R I'd have none in the crankcase after a month.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
