It's possible that you're burning oil or there could be a leak somewhere. Best thing to do is place a piece of cardboard under the vehicle overnight after the car has been driven, and see if there's any leaking happening. If not, then try to notice your exhaust. If it's coming out really white, then you may have an internal leak somewhere and it's burning off in the exhaust pipes. I hope this helps.
