Chrome cylinders tend to use more oil than plain or nitrided steel
because the chrome is quite porous.

If it were me and compression were normal and the engine ran good, I
would stop obsessing and just buy oil by the case. That will be a lot
cheaper than a ring job or new jugs.

By the way, it may also be that your engine blows anything above 4
quarts overboard. My IO-360 blows anything above 6.5 quarts out the
breather in short order. And it gets about 5-6 hours per quart even
though it has less than 400 hours on it (ECI Cerminil cylinders). I
obsessed over that for a couple of months after I bought the plane.
Now I just buy oil.

Skipper 36E. I finally got to fly on a short X/C on Friday night. I
flew from Hillsboro to Eugene and back for a total of about 2.3
hours. The oil level was at around 4.8 qts before the flight and
just under 4 afterwards. This was flying at 2700rpms for almost the
entire time.

rings make any difference or will new cylinders be needed to
stabilize the oil consumption?
