Have you taken the oil fill cap off with the engine running? If the rings are leaking you will see lots of fumes.
For what it's worth, my recently acquired 2.4 mjet did this, though not so badly. It had been a shopping wagon for the last 6 years, and had just had its egr valve cleaned. The previous owner mentioned running on. I gave it injector cleaner plus Shell Vmax plus some good A road runs and the problem went away. No need to assume the worst(?)
