Define "a lot".  The first time they look, everyone is surprised by how much 
oil floats around in the system.  Have you looked before, and are finding 
_more_ now - or is this your first look?
Get the engine idling and then clamp the breather hose going into the rear of 
the air mass sensor.  Does the engine's behaviour change?
