Puff of smoke

Just noticed when walking up from behind the car, very small puff out left pipe every couple seconds. My guess is a ring is worn on one of my cylinders (Grrrrrrrr)

gonna do an oil change, maybe move from 5 20 to 10 30 or 10 40

Smoke is slightly white

Anyone seen this before?

Just a thought but check your oil and make sure it doesn't look like a milkshake. Normally smoke colors of white=heads/antifreeze, blue=oil. Also see if you can do a pressure test on each cylinder. That is where you use air pressure into each cylinder and then start listening/looking at various places. Bubble in radiator=headgasket, oil cap=rings, intake/exhaust=valves. I normally will do every cylinder to find the issue.

Does the smoke smell kind of sweet like antifreeze?
