A compression test indicates how well the compression rings are sealing (on the compression stroke), not the oil control ring.

I feel your pain 79, only advice I can offer is have a dealer do an oil consumption test. That's all we had to do for my Wife's car. Yes inconvenient to have to take it to the dealer every 1000-1200 miles (or in our case when the low oil level light came on). SOA isn't going to do anything until they have the data.
