Leaking oil after long drive

Ok so since I've owned the truck it's always leaked a small amount of oil but after long trips ie like 200 miles ill shut the truck off and go inside like 2 hours latter I come out there's a large amount of oil on the time. This seems to happen every trip I take and I can't figure out where the oil is coming from. Anyone have a clue

crawl up onto the motor, and look directly down in the middle of it. Tell us if the oil is puddled up behind the fuel bowl or toward the back of the "valley".

Well from what it looks like to me the oil is puddling up down low behind the fuel bowl but before the turbo.

Here's an interesting video, BUT I have to warn you about this guy,,,, he makes Great Videos, that Does NOT make him infallible though. He's got some really GOOFY theories (not about this though) So, don't take him as your Guru, as many do Confirm his advice on anything else he says
