Did you just purchase the car? Switched to synthetic ?

So it's not because of switching to synthetic - I assume the oil consumption started only recently.

The 2010 models (P3 as we call them) had a widespread PCV problem causing the engine to start taking oil at alarming rates with low miles. The PCV box is located at the top of the engine and easy to replace. This should be quickly addressed or it can damage the piston rings. The only reason I didn't mention it first is because I suspect by 2015 they had already used the improved PCV design, but who knows... maybe yours still came with the faulty designed PCV. Worth a check with the dealer, they should check the numbers and tell if your engine has the improved PCV box.

Just a link but there is more info on the net

While there, Quaker State may not be the best oil out there, but that's another subject..

Isn't it still in warranty? Get it checked at dealer.

600 miles out of warranty, taking it in next week for evaluation; if it is rings or worse, going to ask for "Volvo goodwill" as I'm sure the problem began before warranty expiration.
thanks for your info,
