If you are loosing that much oil, I'd do a compression test on the engine to see if you have a dead cylinder or low compression. (i.e.worn out piston rings/piston bores)
And don't overlook the obvious..look for an oil leak under the car. (put a piece of cardboard under the car when you park it, and check it for anything that dripped off the motor.)
Ditto on what the others said, do not over-fill the oil, it can cause some damage. Worst I've seen was a 2.8L V6 that someone stuffed six quarts into. Ruined all the rod bearings.
