Oil use on V6

I seem to be down about a quart a month, no leaks, no smoke. Any reason for this on the 3.6? My 3.6 CTS seems to do the same thing, although the Caddy has 60K. The Camaro is only at 10K.
Thanks, the people on this forum are great, my wife and I are just happy to have a sports car again.

it might be the oil you are using. Try Mobile 1 and change every 3k never use the oil life indicator on the car. they are junk. At 3k the oil is blaand my car says that i have 75% left. WRONG!!!! Also use an ACDelco oil filter.

Have you sent your oil out for analysis or are you just judging based on the color alone?
