: 2000 A8L Burns oil

Greetings to all,
I am the owner of a 2000 A8L with 87K miles. At 83K miles I had the oil changed at an Audi Dealer. Over the weekend after hearing a clicking noise common with lifter noise, I checked the deepstick for oil level. It was dry. I mean totally dry. Added a quart of oil then another and another. After 5 quarts it finally showed min level of oil on the deepstick. Anyone has an answer on how can it burn 5-6 quarts of oil in 4000 miles of driving? There is no leak as nothing shows on the garage floor.
The car now has 87K miles and I am about to change oil again this week.
