    A litre every 700 miles isn't normal, and you shouldn't see blue smoke
    I would check the compression on each cylinder.

    That limit is the upper one though, in good condition the engine shouldn't be using that much oil, and if it is throwing out blue smoke then something is worn internally, piston rings or valve stem oils seals are common culprits.
