Yes, that oil consumption is very high. I do not believe that an MD17 has an oil cooler but I may be mistaken. I would check your waterpump to start with. Is there anything coming out of the weep hole? Are you sure that there is no water in your oil? There is usually contamination both ways which will slowly turn your oil milky white.
