5.2 oil consumption and pressure survey

I'm curious as to how much oil your engine burns in 3k intervals as well as the oil pressure when warm.
Mine burns close to a quart every 3k and runs around 55-60psi driving and around 30 psi idle.

That sounds about right for my '93 grand cherokee as well (before I traded it in a couple of years ago). I was adding 1 quart every 3K miles and the oil pressure was about 60psi
