Oil consumption just spiked...?

Hey guys, I own a 92 525 touring that I just converted to a 5speed. When it was an automatic I very rarely had to top up the oil. Maybe once every 10 tanks or once between oil changes. Now that I have converted it to manual, I have to top it up almost every tank... Wtf? It's the M50NV engine... No indication of oil leaks either 242,000km
Thanks in advance...

ive also heard that if you overfill on an oil change, it goes into the overflow/blowby and creates a siphon and you cant correct it until you drain all the oil....
