I have 22,000 miles and in-between every oil change at 5000 miles nothing on dip stick. at 4500 mile till oil change add oil light came on added 1 qt nothing on stick took to dealer for oil change, had them check how much oil in pan it was still 1 qt down. so 2 qts down in 4500 miles. no leaks no blue smoke antifreeze normal. doing a oil consumption test with dealer every 1000 miles bring to dealer and they are checking level. side bar I only use premium fuel when towing? oil usage does not sound good to me. any ideas?
 
Just started tracking the same issue Toolman. 21 TB w/ 6.2 and 28K miles. I do my own maintenance and use Amsoil synthetic 0W-20. One month after my last ok change I noticed the level was low 1/2 quart. This truck is a daily driver and zero towing. No other issues to report.
