Could it get worse?

I added 1 quart to the crankcase when the car was low, then drove the car all kinds of hard for 500 miles, ( one week in my commute). Dropped the oil out and went back to normal oil.

Now I'm at 1/2 quart use in 4200.

I don't believe it myself. But I am a meticulous record keeper, and the numbers are there.
Good luck

Well, that was dumb of me. I added Marvel Mystery Oil. To above subject.
