Start tracking your consumption. I had a similar issue with a past car that needed new piston rings. I too purchased the car used. The inspection was clean, it had service history, and was accident free. At 27000 miles I would go around 3500 miles per liter. At 40000 miles I would go 1500-1750 miles per quart. At 55000 miles it need a quart every 800 miles. That's when I traded the car in.

With that said I don't want to freak you out but your consumption does seem high. As long as it remains constant and doesn't continue to drop it you should be ok. Good Luck. I hope it works out for you.
