2000 7.3 idle and running problems

Hi there, i bought a 2000 f250 7.3 about a month ago, and it has 180,000 on the motor, and the other night i put fuel in it, and after about a half mile of driving i noticed the idle was getting rougher and a blue cloud of smoke was appearing out of the tail pipe. As i drove down the road it got proggressively worse. It was sputtering and the blue smoke became larger, and as u hit the gas it had no power and felt like as if it was loading up with fuel and then almost like a backfire sound. I turned the truck off and it restarted with a super rough idle, and a continuous cloud of blue smoke. Everybody i have talked to is suggesting the injector pump, or a few injectors stuck open. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks for looking.

Sounds like bad fuel. Sure you didnt put in good ol gasoline?

Nonconformist. Functionality over bling.

My three rules for 7.3l troubleshooting: 1) Replace CPS and keep a spare. 2) Replace FPR and know your fuel pressure. 3) Hook it to a scanner and check for codes.
