I bought my 2012 last summer with 32K miles on it. The first oil change I didn't do myself but I've done it since the second one starting every 5K miles and now every 3-4K miles. I've noticed the smell since the first oil change that I did. I Google'd it and found out that it was "normal" for the EcoBoost motors but not necessarily for the other Ford DI motors. My Lincoln MKZ has the same 3.5 L V6 sans the turbos and I have no such issues with fuel oil dilution. Next mod will be the oil separator.
