I think you waited too long before you checked it. Waiting 5-10 minutes after shutting down your warmed up engine should be long enough for the oil to be at an accurate level in the oil pan. When you wait as long as you did, the oil is cool, and the reading is likely to be low.
Of course, I could be utterly wrong. But if you were actually burning oil at such a spectacular rate, you should see clouds of smoke. And, if your GC were leaking it, you should find greasy spots in your driveway.
