Icon5 Suggested engine oil for reduced burning?

Hey guys. I have a 97 prelude base pretty much stock. I have noticed in the last few months i have been burning quite a drastic amount of oil (after a full oil change I needed to top it up with a quart or two before the next 5k came for another oil change). Im pretty tight on cash at the moment and dont really have the time or money to get the burning looked into/ fixed at the moment but the time is coming for me to do another oil change.

My question is, what oil do you guys recommend for my prelude that is burning quite alot? Car has been taken care of quite well with over $10k in receipts but does have 283000km. I have previously been using Mobil super 2000 5w30 and like i said the engine has just been eating that stuff up.

Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks, Reid.
