The oil could be going out the tail-pipe. ;)

Take the air-cleaner off, open the TB butterfly valves and look down into the plenum with a flash light.

If you see "any" oil there, you have an intake oil plenum leak. It's about a four hour job for a 1st timer to replace the intake manifold gasket. Take your time and cover each step carefully. A good torque wrench is a friend for this job too.
