Truck eating tons of oil

So as the title says my trucks eating oil no leaks as far as I know there's none where it gets parked which brings me to the conclusion that it possibly has bad rings because it has eaten about 1.5 min in less than 500 miles and I'm getting terrible mileage does anybody have anythoughts? And if you think I'm right and are from the northen or central cali area and know of anygood performance diesel shops let me know because if it ends up being more than rings I might just through a 12 valve in with a zf6 or heavily built auto I really wanna start drag racing so its going to be a built motor

I would bet on bad injector O-rings, before (and I'll assume you meant (piston rings). The job is not that bad to do and is usually less than $100 for 8 sets of O-rings. When mine failed, it went through 8 quarts in 150 miles! Cheers!
