So much for my theory. If the vacuum pump did leak and suck in oil, it would just discharge it back into the valve cover.

A plugged up PVC system will cause high oil consumption as well. The kimchi Kruiser's PVC system was completely clogged up and was using 1 1/2 quarts of oil every 500 miles. Even though it was self changing the oil about every 3 weeks, the oil was always black. (gasser engine)
