oil usage


Vehicle Information: Model: 911 ; Year: 1985; Body Type: Targa; Engine (type, size, modifications): 6 cyclinder; Total Mileage: 130750;

Purchased 1985 911 Carrera in Apr 2008 with 129750 miles. Last valve job done on car was at 127750. Car now has 130750 miles. My oil guage needle is above the full reading, but checked dip stick level and it is barely on the stick. I added just under 2 quarts about 750-800 miles ago and dip stick reading was at full mark. Some blue smoke when start the engine, but runs clean and no "check oil or engine" lights have come on. Is this normal oil usage? Guess my oil guage is broken? And how much should a normal valve job cost? Thanks
