uh, with 2 gallons its more likely leaking it rather than burning it. if it smokes a lot of blue then its posssible its burning it though. look for a puddle of oilon the ground and around the turbo, basically just all around.

2 gallon would be a lot of oil to burning through the engine. But it could be the turbo seal leaking it out the exhaust side. Good mosquito repeller!!
