If your'e winding it out to 8200k all the time, you will inevitably burn some oil. I'm at 97k miles and I drive pretty aggressively when traffic allows. I go through 1-2qts every oil change (3000miles) and I'm not worried. I check it occasionally and top some off. These motors are solid as long as you dont let oil cavitation happen as a result of too much blow by and not enough preventative maintenance.
