Eating oil, smokes, everything is wrong with this truck.

I recently purchased this truck, 1999 250 powerstoke 225k. Purchased it using oil and had oil in fuel so I changed injector o rings, 2 were ate-up, thought I cured it.

Now first long drive after o-rings (15 miles in traffic running for 45 min) and its out of oil again!!
Before the trip I had a hard time starting and I am pretty sure the fuel screens in the tank are clogged up as I have to give it throttle for it to stay running for the first few minutes then idled fine when warm but it was smoking more than normal. It was smoking white at idle and dark smoke (blue black idk) on harder acceleration, not to much that I was concerned to drive it. It was sluggish to accelerate, and the turbo noise sounded different.
The truck is still parked 15 miles away or I would do some more looking around on it. Maybe turbo oil seal related? I will look in the coolant tank for oil and see if the turbo wheel has any play. I hope its not piston rings but could it burn 3 gallons of oil that quick?
There was a little oil in the intercooler piping when I had them off for o-rings.

Did you change all the O-rings on every injector?

Is there oil in the fuel again?

I did all 8. I had trouble getting 2 injectors in and hope I didnt rip them or something.

I did not empty the tank, so I cannot tell. I was going to run it empty first then fill it as I had half a tank.

but how would you explain the smoke? it didnt smoke before when the orings were leaking?
smoke would be air/fuel ratio related??

It wasnt too bad had some, I did not check when it was smoking. Im going to go bring 3 gallons of oil and hopefully bring it home tomorrow. I will tell you then.
How do I do a compression test on this thing? and is there a way to test the turbo?

You have to pull the glow plugs under the valve covers and thread in the adapter. And test turbo? Meaning?

I read another thread saying slow acceleration and smoke could be turbo related.

3gal lost, i'd think the truck wouldn't run. The truck will shut off after a certain loss of oil.

a grease-gun hose will thread into the gp hole, for comp testing. Is the exhaust wet with oil? Remove the compressor housing and check play in turbo.
