Default 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 oil/engine issues

My husband just took his truck in to get it fixed. It has a 318 V8 magnum engine. He just had a major tuneup but for awhile now he has been having to add 1 quart of oil every two weeks maybe more. Obviously it is either burning or leaking oil but the mechanic saw no leak and believes it is burning oil. He said it would not be worth replacing the engine and when I asked about getting it fixed possibly he said again it was not worth it even though we have no idea why it is burning oil. My concern is that I want to keep oil in it and make sure it doesn't get too low. My husband says he has been keeping oil in it and the dipstick says it is full but strangely the mechanic said it was 3 quarts low. I'm not sure why he is finding it full but yet it was so low. Any ideas? Thank you
