I have many Leicas but not M6 - however, check this out:

which tells how it is possible for a set of batteries to drain in 1 to 2 days(!).
Of course, if the batteries you buy are long-dated and therefore fairly certain to be fresh and you get a low-battery indication IMMEDIATELY you fit them, this points to some other problem.
