Is anyone else having this issue?
So that Is about a 1.3 quarts in 3100 miles? That is acceptable by todays standards. Lots of imports and domestics have the same type of burn off ratio as acceptable.

I have not added any to mine yet but have not driven it far enough.

What type oil? What brand?

Read a little on this site about oil burning off.
