How many miles on your Prius and how much oil consumption?

My wife's 2008 Prius has 318,000 miles and appears to use about 1 quart every 1,500 miles. I'll know in the next month or so when it gets down to the add notch on the dipstick. Seems reasonable for the mileage, but want to see what others are experiencing as well as how high their mileage is.

Somewhere around 70k. 2012 Plug in Prius. with 30% EV use.

No noticeable oil use. I change the oil once per year at around 12k miles.

My 2005 with 135k miles is using about 0.5-1qt of Mobil1 0w-20 every 5k miles. I don't try to fill it exactly to the top hole after changing (because I always end up going over when I do that), and I forget to make a note of exactly where it is on the dipstick. I do 10k oil change intervals and I've had to add a little between the last couple changes.
