Smoke while engine is warm....

So i just purchased a 2006 F250 with the 6.0 powerstroke at 241000miles on the clock. and love the truck! Picked it up from down south and the truck has a mint body, not a speck of rust! Have put about 200 miles on it so far and for about the first 150-175 i did not notice any smoke (even under hard acceleration) or haze coming from the exhaust, but a couple days ago i was scraping off old window tint and drained the battery while listening to the radio with the auto head lights coming on.... So i put the truck on the charger and got it charged up enough to start it, then let it idle for about 15min and turned it off because i had to get some stuff together to run errands. Went back to the truck after about 1/2hr and no problems starting and the truck was fairly warm (and pretty warm outside, about 55-60 degrees) got about 3 miles from the house and noticed excessive blueish/white smoke coming from the tailpipe...what the hell! There was a lot of smoke, i thought something catastrophic happened so i was getting ready to turn around and head home and about got within about a mile of my house and noticed the smoke completely stopped.
Since then i have notices an occoasional blueish white smoke coming from the exhaust (have not noticed any smell) but only seems to happen when the truck is warm, i have not noticed any smoke on startup as one would think. It only lasts for a minute or two then seems to go away and it hasnt been as bad as the first time i noticed. I am thinking that either the battery being drained and not fully recharged has triggerd this by maybe not supplying the proper voltage to the FICM or possibly have an injector sticking a bit; what do you guys think? FYI I just orderd a gallon of archoil ar9100 and will do a full service once it arrives.

UPDATE: Did an oil/filter chane (used motorcraft filter and added 16oz of archoil) and also changed fuel filters (used international filters) but still having a smoke problem... It is starting to get colder outside, around 40* in the morning and I have noticed a little smoke (white) when starting (I know this is pretty common with all diesels once it starts to get cooler outside). Once the truck warms up though it still occoasionally smokes bluish/white while driving, then goes away completely, then comes back seemingly at random. I seem to notice it start to smoke when pulling away from a stop sign or stoplight and notice the engine seems to have a little hesitation when smoking, doesnt seem to be as big of a problem while crusing. When it does smoke there is quite a bit coming out and it is starting to scare me into thinking there is something big wrong, where should I start?

You need a monitor. Load test your batteries, google ficm check procedure. Read the stickies on monitoring your truck. Need to pull codes.

Hmmm, maybe you should pull your egr and inspect.

I apologize, op, if your seeing blue smoke expect a leaking turbo seal, or sometimes caused by ccv mods. White smoke is typically ficm or injector problems. Rotella t6 or mobile 1 synthetic are common oils used by many.
