Strong fuel smell could be a sticking injector, the blue-ish smoke is probably fuel or oil, sticking injectors are far more common than burning oil or bad turbo seals in a 6.4. I just had to replace my #1 injector. It had a blue haze at idle but ran perfect warmed up...it also was throwing a cylinder balance/contribution code...it wouldn't hurt to get it checked out, an injector is cheaper than a motor...hope it's only a fluke...but don't ignore things with this motor, it can adapt to run very well when issues arise, which can mask problems until things break or melt...
