It occurred to me rereading the post that you could have an engine that has worn-out valve stem seals. A good temporary measure would be to try some the "high mileage engine oils" such as Valvoline's MaxLife, or Castrol's. They have additives that swell up the valve stem seals and others. It doesn't cure these problems but does help short-term.

I have been using these oils in the '91 300E and it have reduced the oil consumption considerably.
