Ok, you say almost empty. Do you mean it just dropped to the bottom of the dip stick? Since you have a non-turbo they are geared pretty low and spin over fairly fast on the highway. My 1979 300D used to burn a fair amount of oil if I did a lot of highway driving at or above 100km\h. And this was without any sign of smoke.
