Hi I'm Kevin the first thing to do is a diesel leak off test this tests to see how much fuel the injector is using even under cranking you can buy these tools reasonably cheap if you don't have access to them.
Heres a link.

This will show how much fuel is used by each injector and compeer them against each other to rule them out
