4 quarts in 15 miles , if it were sucking that much thru turbo, it would be smoking so bad you couldnt see behind you

suckin oil

its only blowin white smoke when oil level gets low enough its starting to turn injectors off. What else could it be?

After replaced turbo did complete oil change made an 80 mile round trip with no problems. Started it up, no problem, drove 3 miles and it started cutting out loosing power. Checked engine oil level and hardly registered on stick.

Has slight leak at front of oil pan, but no visible puddles.
