20 days and 600Km after, checked the dipstick.

525746

Red line was where it was when I've added 900ml(+150ml of MMO)
So it's burning damn fast, I think. I just added another 900ml of SuperTech 0W20.

I can't find the time to do the soaking method because of god damn work shift giving me no day off.

Even putting that into consideration, wouldn't the consumption rate be quicker than normal?

At this point, I'm worried if my engine is going to be okay... and I don't have the budget to move on to next car. :(

Stop worrying, your engine is going to be OK, just keep checking the oil level. Ever change the PCV valve ?

Yes, I changed it around the time I added oil- 20 days ago.

So engine oil burning won’t damage the engine? Should I just keep adding/changing oil as it goes?

Many here have oil usage, mostly on the 4 cylinder because of the way the rings were mfg. A few have gotten the engine to stop consuming oil by using the piston soak method, but usually it just slows the consumption down. Honda says using a qt. of oil every 1,000 miles is considered normal. I put in a qt. every 900 miles. Just keep adding / changing (low / dirty oil can stretch the timing chain & wear the guides).

Give Lucas Synthetic Oil Stabilizer a try. You add 20% of the volume of your crankcase, or a little less than a quart. Wait until the next oil change to try it.
It helped my '06 reduce its consumption quite a bit. Didn't think it would work, but it did.

Have you checked the spark plug tube seals? The oil consumption on my 4 cylinder slowed up quite a bit after I replaced the broken seals.
