Exclamation consuming a lot of oil and i'm finding oil in the fuel filter bowl

okay guys i really need y'all's help on this one, i just replaced the left side injector o-rings because according to my research on the forum that would cause it to contaminate my fuel with oil. the right side injector o-rings were done a year ago and i haven't had any issues up until this time. could the injectors be leaking oil internally into the fuel system???? thanks for the help i really need it! by the way its a 2002 ford f350 dually with a 7.3l powerstroke.

You're consuming the oil because you're burning it. The HiPres oil, that drives the injectors, is leaking into the fuel rail because the O-Rings on the injector(s), on the outside of each injector and seals-off between those channels in the Head, has failed.

You need to pull them all and replace those O-Rings...

22qts is a LOT! But, hey, you're saving on fuel

haha thanks i appreciate it i took the injectors back out, after doing some research and i found that dorman and napa brand o-rings have a recall for the rubber deteriorating because of the oil and fuel. i just put brand new motorcraft o-rings on it so hopefully my problem is fixed now. thanks for the help, yeah if only the oil was cheaper than diesel around here in texas haha
