well i just reread your thread if you have a leak, than yes it would be normal cause you are losing the oil

its not a big leak doesnt drip of the pan just mad it wet and one little drop like a week.

But in the factory book ford gives you on the powerstroke says it usall for the motor to use some oil, between changes. It says to check it everytime you refill your tanks???
