Default Burning a Quart of Oil Per 1500 miles: Oil Pan gasket or Rings?

Which would it be, if I lose a solid quart of oil every 1500 miles?

Well, you'll never know how much it's actually burning until you fix the leak...

How much oil drip do you have under the oil pan, tranny?

It's relatively easy to change out the oil pan gasket.

Well, I don't know if I have a drip under the oil pan or not. I know that the Oil Pan DOES have oil all over it...but I'm a messy guy when I change the oil/add oil. I'm going to wipe it down good when it cools off, and also put some cardboard under the oil pan to see if it's dripping.
I know it's relatively easy to change the oil pan seal, but if it's uneeded work, it's uneeded work.

Put a cardboard under oilpan and let it sit overnight.
You will see something if it leaks.
