How much oil does your 90 consume?

I am curious how much oil your trucks are consuming and/or leaking. Mine only has about 25k miles on it, but does leak a bit & I seem to be adding oil frequently. Any thoughts?

What engine do you have ?

There are a couple of threads about that particular subject.
Try a search.

my 95 with 88K, uses virtually none. Since it was new (I had the truck since it had 6 miles on the clock) I used only synthetic in it.

Little leaks here and there - I do the oil twice year, so it never gets dangerously low.
