Oil Burning issues, Anybody?

Does anyone have oil burning issues?
158k + miles now.
She burns through a quart every 11 - 1200 miles. There is no oil under the engine or under the car at all. There is no smoke or colored exhaust coming from the tail pipe. Just a little bit of oil on the ground behind the tail pipe from time to time. I can also smell it, it's subtle, yet there.
She is my daily driver and I drive about 70 miles a day. Average speed, 70+/-.
I've been using various products to clean the motor every gas fill up.
Anybody else deal with these issues?

I have about 205k on my car
It has been
Smacked a few times
And I burn close to a quart every 3k miles
and instead of adding oil
I just do a change.
I have no drips and it's dry underneath
No smoke out the exhaust either.

I think it is a little excessive because
It never was even low between oil changes
Until about the last 10k miles.

The only thing I do notice is around the valve cover up top is a little wet around it
I was thinking of throwing one of them on
In the future when I get around to it
to see if it helps.
