id be checking under the car for spots and in the cooling sytem for cream, boost hoses etc.

rocker cover gaskets quite common so im told for a leak.

Same here... 146000 km and uses no oil, no leaks either. Oil stays clear for ages too.... I think you need to investigate - get someone to follow you looking for smoke maybe?

agree std pressure gauges lie like a cheap chinese watch! check for smoke on startup (valve stem seals) leaks on the turbo, leaks on the sump gasket etc as any healthy Skyline engine should never use a drop tbh!
