Mine comes on when I'm one quart low, which is about ever 3,000 miles. I use my light to tell me when its time for an oil change.

Your not gonna see oil in the intake if its burning it through the head. Leaking stem seal or guides will not show oil in the intake nor will blow by. Try pulling the plugs out and see what they look like.
Don't make this assumption!

The dynamics of airflow in the intake is VERY complex.

If oil is leaking past the intake valve seals/guides, then it should show in the intake runners.
How much oil will depend on the specific engine, mostly the cam I would think...





I did not intend the following writeup for this type of question, but it may help narrow down what you are looking at...
