No matter what is causing it,its not a cheap fix unless its something super easy like a blocked airway causing the oil to go up the breather.I have never seen that to be the case and it is unlikely. More likely its valve seals,sticking valves,bad rings,or the worse case of broken pistons,in that order of lilkelyhood. Get a leakdown and compression test done by a competent service place and they can tell you much better. It wont matter what oil you run be it heavy or thin,it will burn at the same rate. Kinda sucks getting an oil burner if you wanna keep a clear concience you cant really sell it to someone without letting them know and if you do tell them youll have to damn near give it away.
