Burning Oil 01 Viggen

Seems that I'm burning 1.5-2qts oil per 250miles No leaks. Doesn't seem like I'm chuffing blue smoke either, a little blue on first startup of the day but I'm also getting a CEL for a bad cat. I hear my PCV could be causing this?? I was planning to upgrade to PCV6 soon just as preventative. Any ideas Saablink?

How old is the turbo, the seal might be leaking? A bad pcv valve can also cause a little, but usually it causes leaks. Change it asap.

I'd do a compression check first, then suspect the turbo like lms wrote. 1.5 - 2.0 qts in 250 miles is really bad, I'm skeptical that a PCV problem could even cause a loss of that magnitude.

Did it get to this state gradually over time or more suddenly?
