Cool oil lost

I have a 95 F350 with 7.3 Powerstroke,I been in the engine due to a self inflected problem. The truck has been running like new until a month ago. I changed the oil, drove it maybe fifty miles, checked it the next day and it was about a gallon low, thinking I made a mistake and not let the filter fill up I toped it off and went on, the next morning it was a gallon plus low, no leaks, no smoke, tail pipe as white and clean as a gas engine,I check to see if the injectors had backed out, nothing. Pulling out the little hair I got, HELP!!!

Check your coolant and see if its contaminated by chance. If not 100% sure on leaks, I'd take and rub it all down on the underside and park over a fresh piece of pavement (or lay down newspaper). If all checks out, maybe you are burning it between injector o-rings and just not seeing it.

Did you remove the/a injector out of the head and reinstall them without changing the orings? My truck had this same problem with the previous owner and he did install the injectors on old orings. It want smoking at all but would use oil almost a much as it used diesel.
