What does it mean if a truck starts burning oil too much?

you probably have a broken piston ring that is supposed to keep the oil out of the cylinder bore, the oil goes through and is burned with the gas.

What Shady Mechani pointed out could cause it and the tell tale sign would be a blueish tint to your exhaust fumes. Another reason could be a dirty oil filter, a PCV valve that needs to be replaced, and last but not least slug build up in the engine. The last will require an engine flush. A good one would be Auto-Rx.

You can try going to a little heavier oil but it will unlikely help much with the oil burning. A high mileage oil would be a good choice.

All I can do is give you starting prices. It really just depends on how you configure the truck. The F-150 starts at $21,850. The F-250 starts at $28,500. The F-350 starts at $28,983. The F-450 starts at $46,500. The F-450 has such a high starting cost because it comes standard with the crew cab, long bed, 4WD, and the diesel engine.
