Hello

the most likley scenario is 1 or more of the injectors is sticking open and dribbling fuel into the sump overnight

so its worth considering a bottle of injector cleaner into the tank as a clogged injector nozzle will reduce power and give poor combustion - the next stage on from this is to remove all the injectors and have them ultrasonically cleaned and flow checked
