I would first like to say wow what a description i think you take first prize for that.
I can't help but think you are getting your leg lifted somehow, my first thoughts are that the car has had the wrong oil in it, if it has it will in my opinion use ie burn oil, ive yet to see any modern car that uses more than 1 litre of oil per service per year,
I would make it known to the company that you are not happy with the situation, if your sump was leaking to lose that amount of oil or burn it off you would know about it. you need to do more homework, find out if the service book has been marked with the type of oil used, see if it is correct for that vehicle, get an independant engineer involved, the insurance company should have one and with this claim he should have already veiwed the engine prior to agreeing to mend it.
speak to trading standards and citizens advice about it before you go ahead with the repairs.
My feeling is the car had either the wrong oil fitted or an underlying fault when it was sold on to you, but be carefull what you say to the warrenty company because if they suspect wrong oil or underlying fault when sold they probably would not pay out
