2013 Ecoboost Exhaust Leaking Oil

Hello all,
New member here, long time lurker!
Just acquired a 2013 F150 FX4, 3.5L Ecoboost
I've noticed it's been shooting out a little too much white smoke out of the exhaust lately- not just because it's super cold out either. Accordingly, today what looks like oil is dripping out out of the exhaust... Does this have anything to do with a DI engine or me needing a catch can?
Any input to steer me in the right direction would be appreciated. Thanks!!

Itís not oil. You are seeing the condensation that the exhaust system produces leaking out. The eco runs rich, so your water is mixed with soot that makes it look like oil.
