You SURE it's not leaking? That's a lot of oil.
Do you see any oil in the tailpipe or in the compressor side of the turbo? You'll see some oil residue in the intake system because of the crank case venting into it but I'm talking serious oil if your turbo seal has let go.
If you honestly do not see any oil anywhere in, under, behind it or anything, it's burning it. That's what the blue smoke may be. If it runs out of oil, it won't have any oil to fire the injectors so it won't run.

Huh? 'If it's burning oil it can eat it that fast?' I think that's what you meant. Depends. It could be. See if there's oil in your fuel bowl. If an injector oring let go, the oil at the injectors is at a much higher pressure than diesel and would force itself back to the fuel system.
The crank case vent should be after the air filter and before the compressor wheel right above the driver side valve cover. That's not where you're losing oil though.

I'm just listing off things you can check. I'm not an expert, just read a lot.
But yes, not sure what oring it is but yea. The injector cup keeps oil out of your coolant. Guess you could check that too. See if your coolant is oily.

I am having the exact same problem with excessive oil consumption. I am not getting it in the radiator. Wonder if it is the turbo.

If it's the turbo, you'd see a TON of oil in either the exhaust or your intake system.
