What causes this?

Over the past couple months, I have been getting P0308 among other codes that I've read about on here on a semi-regular basis (p1211, p1212, p1247 and p1249). Yesterday I was on the highway when it sounded like something let go and I had a beautiful white cloud behind me. When I pulled into the gas station I checked the scent and it was diesel. The coolant bottle was full, there was no coolant in the oil or vice versa. Today I pulled the #8 injector and as you can see in the picture, the tip was missing. Luckily it broke above the copper washer and did not fall into the motor. I replaced the injector ($300 at advance...) and unfortunately still have the codes, but so far, no cyl 8 misfire. The engine still runs rough and I do still get the cloud behind me, although its less white and not nearly as thick. Any ideas? BTW, I have the Bullydog GT tuner and thats how I was able to pull the codes.
