Green coolant is fine. Car came with the orange DexCool, but there is no need to use it, and some recommend not using it. If the overflow bottle stays clean, your system was probably flushed well. If you see any slime, flush the cooling system again.

As for the oil burning, if it is manageable, there is no need to rebuild the engine and drill pistons. Going 150 miles with no drop on the dipstick is a good sign. Some members here have had engines that would have already required a quart to be added after 150 miles!!!
