I eat 1600ml of coconut oil every week. Is that too much? Since I started doing that my lips are always smooth, I didn't get any acne, my health improved. It's not the only thing I'm doing for my health though, so it could be the other things I do, but as long as it's not harmful, why wouldn't I do it?

Wow. 1.6 L is a lot, for me (in Japan) purely from a cost point of view, sourcing that much high quality oil per week would cost a small fortune.
My thoughts on this are: It may be working for you right now but that may change, high dose of anything, no matter how beneficial it may be, can be dangerous in the long run eg. the case of fish oil. Also, What would say to someone who swears by 20 eggs a day every day? or even that misguided fool Durianrider who eats 30 bananas a day, as he is absolutely convinced by it. Step back and look it like that.
If you are really set on it, then perhaps cycle it - a week/month of 1000ml plus and a week/month of much less. Mix it up with Avocado or macadamia oil as well.
