It comes from the crank case ventalation.

Make sure it's not over full and check for blow-by when it's hot.

Some oil is normal. Is he maintaining the air filter?

All my touring photos. (except the two massive trips in 2011-soon to be posted eventually)

Coastal Maine road trip 2007

Alaska tour 2008 - 14,000 miles in 28 days

/ 2011 F250 4x2 Crew Cab /
Replaced "The Beast" 6.4L with 75,000 miles. Hated to see it go.

Yeah you could have a leaky injector and it could be filling the crank case. See my avatar and you will see what happens if you dont catch it. But you could also just have a loose boot on you IC. Grab you a 7/16 and tighten them all
