Bad oil leak

I have a 95 idi it started out as a small oil leak that I was not conserned about. then it started to spray the top of my hood and oil was everywhere on top of the motor. I cleaned everything powerwashed it and started it and I could see oil coming somewhere around the fuel filter and water separator I couldent tell where but there was oil draing into the vally. so as of right now I think its the fuel filter o rings and maybe the hpop gasket, also I need new turbo pedestal o rings. ant write ups on how to change the hpop gasket and filter o rings? also in the past 2 days ive drove it about 20 mile and have went through 2 gallons of oil. any susgesstions?

My first suggestion is to stop driving it if you're going through that much oil. You have a serious leak and with a friend you should be able to find the leak. Undo the GPR and crank the truck and see if you can find the leak that way. I haven't had to deal with an issue like this yet but i'm sure someone will chime in and offer a good answer.
