My thinking is along the same lines as Bill's. What is the consumption/loss rate? I didn't notice excessive blue smoke from your tailpipe last Sunday. Have you checked for leaks underneath?

The previous F engine in my 71 smoked so much from worn and broken rings, Kevin Ehrlick made me tailgunner one year on a Slaughterhouse run. I protested "But she WANTS to be a diesel!". Yet that plus leaks from a number of spots only lost a quart between changes every 2500 miles.
