Commonly known as "blow by". It's what gets past the piston rings every time each cylinder fires. Happens with all engines,....it's just a matter of how much blow by there is. The more worn and "tired" an engine is,....especially worn out rings, the more blow by. I just read recently (and I firmly believe in this) that some of the sweetest running "T" engines are very loose and pretty well worn out! If it runs good, and you don't plan on any long trips with your "T", just drive it until it no longer runs "pretty good" (or better) on all four cylinders,....FWIW,.....harold

*IF* the gasses are actually EXHAUST gasses, then be wary. But, most likely, you have a vapor of hot oil from valve lubrication contacting the hot block. Modern cars have the same situation, but they have a "positive crankcase ventilation" system- PCV valve.

Keep the windows open or the side curtains off. That stuff will get into the passenger compartment. Other than that, no big problem if it runs good.
