Does a good amount of your oil seem to be magically dissapearing?

Look at your fuel filter. If it is black as night, your injector o rings are leaking.

white smoke on start up happens if the engine is cold, it will do it a good amount in the winter especially

Mine still has a light white haze that comes out when I first start it after sitting for a day in that temperature.

YOu need to have someone else start it up for you after it sits overnight and you need to be near the tailpipe to smell the smoke. it could be fuel or it could be oil. Bepending on what the smoke smells like will give you a better idea of what is causing it.

Re: bad injector o-ring symptoms?

If that is the caes then your orings are not the issue. That smell is caused by your glow plug system not working well. It could be a bad relay, weak batteries, old cables, or worn out glow plugs. That is where you need to start looking.
