I believe your engine is at the end of the road
It is worn out,gaskets won't help

White smoke is an indication of coolant in the
exhaust,from a gasket leak,intake or head gasket.

What sort of fuel consumption can i expect from a 2006 Toyota Prado 4LT petrol 6 speed manual

best at 10 liters per 100 klms , average around 12 liters /100 klms
fuel consumption depends largely on load , speed , operating conditions , towing, highway/city, off road so an exacting answer is not possible as it all depends on the operator and the driving skills

Toyota starlet oil consumption

4 liters in 6 month is abnormal, usual cause of oil loss is worn out piston rings, your car need piston ring replacement

How frequent in changing engine oil

You should do this each 6 months or each 6000 km in severe conditions, which are one or more of......... frequent towing, all short-run driving, all stop-start driving, frequent dusty conditions or extreme heat.
For good conditions, none of the above, Toyota says you can stretch it to half the above frequency but I would not. Oil is cheaper than a new motor.
For the average driver doing a bit of all this I'd say every 6 months or 10000Km, and change the oil filter at the same time.

My oil filter fell off my 2008 Camry SE, two months after an oil change. Ever heard of such a thing?

I just heard a similar issue this week. 2003 Rav4 went more than 500 miles after an oil change. It obviously isn't the person that changed your oil last (even though some people think so). If an oil filter is loose, it won't make it 50 miles, there is too much pressure. The oil will leak out quickly. For the car to go two months is obviously not a loose filter issue. Sounds like a spike in pressure was too much for the filter to hold. Good luck

My 2007 camry hybrid consume 1liter of oil every 3000 km i drive in very hot climate about 44c and mountain road i changed oil as follow 0w20, 5w20, 20w50, 10w30 the oil consumed 1liter per 3000 km no oil...

its burning the engine oil,,and a bit much for my likings
i think i would stick with the 20/50 it may not burn so much
but if the engine is some what under powerd for your kind or driving and you need to drive it hard to get up the hills it could be you need a biger more powerfull motor car,,,some times small is not good!
