Where the hell is my oil going?

For a little while now I have been monitoring my cars oil consumption. I have to add 1-2quarts Every two weeks! Now when I park it in the garage I throw an old table cloth under the car to see if it leaks... No leak... the only answers I could get from my mechanic was "It's a ford". So my question to you is.. Where the hell is my oil going!?

If you can't find any obvious things, oil on the ground, and such, I'd bet you need valve seals, a common problem on '95's. Mine goes through about 2 quarts a month.

probably valve seals.

Keep the oil level up and the car will run forever.
