On a new moor it should never be acceptable for oil consumption and smoke especially with the ultra close tolerances with new motors. The problem is that the PCV allows oil mist to go up into the intake manifold and pool in it then at start up it dumps into the cylinders allowing it to burn. Also when under heavier throttle the extreme pressures that build in the crank case push oil mist up through the PCV and into the combustion chamber. That's why a catch can inline between the PCV and the intake plenum eliminates that. I used to check mine every few hundred miles and empty it back into the oil pan. And with mine I was running mobil1 and 7 quart oil pan it gets expensive when you burn a quart or 2 every oil change.
I burn use Mobil 1 myself and yeah, that gets expensive. No smoke, no smell, just missing oil.
