Default 2 Crosstour household

We've got a 2010 EX-L v6 w/ 90K miles, and a 2015 4 cyl w/ almost 50K miles. Unfortunately, what led me to this forum is the 2010's recent (6 weeks) excessive thirst for oil. There are no leaks and no smoke from the exhaust. The car is super clean and has had regular maintenance, and for the past 2 yrs is only driven locally no more than 50-100 mi/wk.
I've read online about excessive oil consumption for this model but would like to know if honda has done anything regarding this issue for anyone on the forum, or if I just need to add a Q every few hundred miles (which seems ridiculous to me).....I lost faith in the local Honda dealer a couple of years ago when they TRIED to charge me over $2200 to replace door lock actuators and an oil change, but thats another story.
If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

Let me ask a few basic questions first.
Are you the original owner of the 2010 CT?
Who has been doing your maintenances (oil changes)?
What specific brand and weight oil have you been using?
Have you ever used any oil additives?
Has Honda done an oil consumption test?

You realize that Honda declares that 1 quart every 3000 miles is normal.
