    Check underneath it after its been parked up for a couple of hours, see if its physically losing oil or if it is burning it.

    Could also check around the oil filter and sump plug in case they aren't tight enough.

    You haven't serviced it recently have you? Might be a slightly loose oil filter.

    Mine suffered a failed sump gasket, that's about the only oil related issue I keep suffering!
