It's hard to see what's going on in there. About all you can do is wash the area as best you can and use an inspection camera.

The HPOP and IPR together have 7 or 8 o-rings. They all need to be replaced, along with the gaskets. Your truck is 20 years old - it's time to do it.

While you have it torn down, replace the oil lines, fuel lines, fuel pump, and rebuild the fuel bowl - about $800 worth of parts (to get towed in will cost you a third of that). Do all that, do it once, and you should be problem-free for a long time.

Come-n-go oil consumption is puzzling, I've never heard of that. Makes me think that it's something rubber - injector o-ring, valve stem seal, etc.

You might check your fuel bowl to see if any oil is leaking into the fuel system.

A compression/leakdown test might also tell you something.
