sorry to be so late, but...
..."I have a 2007 Rav4 base with 4 cyl that I bought used with 30,000 miles.Therefore I think that I have no factory/dealer recourse. I have 135,000 miles now, and it started consuming oil excessively around 100,000 miles. It finally got to using a quart every 450 miles. I started adding Lucas oil stabilizer and after adding a quart, I have used a pint of oil in the last 1500 miles."

I found some even better material on this subject:
"Why do Toyota engines consume oil ? And how to prevent it?"

I might have found a fix all here.

I am not referring to the oil change frequency parameter suggestions in the middle of the video, (I know everybody here does that already) I am referring to a bit after that(19:20). He both suggests researching out the best oil system cleaners you can find and using them, and reports his experience of these oil system cleaners working well. If you want to understand the reason why oil consumption is a problem to begin with, obviously the beginning of the video is where you'll find that, and I think that would be a good idea.
