Major oil consumption!! If you open the fuel filter and it is black with oil, chances are you have bad o-rings. I just went through all this with my truck....

Only 110,000 miles on 2000 7.3 , cranks & runs fine just smokes for 3-5 minutes when cold. Since most of my drives only average 20 miles 2-3 times a week this means more cold starts than actual driving miles. Lost over 1 gal oil on last 5K oil change.

Could this possibly cause oil consumption at a rate like 3 gallons in 50 miles?

Checking the fuel filter housing for oil is the easiest way to check for injector o-ring failure oil consumption.
