Still leaking a little oil after dealer

The second day of having my truck I noticed a dime sized oil spot in my driveway. Took it to the dealer, they said they cleaned it up and did the dye and blacklight test. They said they did not find where it was leaking and said it was most likely spilled oil from and oil change. We'll now 4 days later I decided to look under the truck and saw some fresh oil near the engine. I cleaned it off the engine and went on a 20 minute drive and when I got back iI looked under the truck and a little oil was under the engine again(none had leaked on the drive since taking to dealer). Should I take it back to the dealer? Let's say they do what ever they do and I get the same results, oil under the engine or maybe a little spot in the driveway. Is this something I can leave alone and just monitor engine oil levels? Thank you

Monitor your oil levels and residue on top of and under the truck. Could be a lot of things. Keep a sharp eye on ur truck. My two cents.

Yes take it to the dealer. Explain you cleaned the area and the spot came back.I sure the dealer does not make much on oil leaks, so it will be easy for them to dismiss. Documentation is needed if it gets worse.
