So after thinking about the problem more, i came to the conclusion that the oil wasn't being consumed as the car does not smoke at all. In addition, I'd lose the most oil after high RPM highway runs. Oil had to be leaking out!

So I finally put florescent dye in the oil, and did a high RPM highway run. Low and behold, the low oil sender had a ton of dye below it:

Just ordered a new sender... Hopefully that will do the trick!
