Thanks, good to hear that there is an M54 motor somewhere that's not an oil hog. I can begin anew on tracking down the cause of this oil issue because there are no leaks and there's no oil on the ground. It has to be going somewhere unless the motor is burning it up at a much higher rate for some reason...

I assume you meant you replaced the oil filter housing gasket?
And not true about the M54 engine. I bought my car new and broke it in like an old man. Change oil every 7500 and last typical change at 9000 miles showed the oil level down only a few ounces without any oil added between changes.
