oil swell, 2009, 6.4 diesel

Hey, first time I heard this one. I have been having my oil level increase, i.e. diesel getting in my oil. I forst noticed it at 30,000 km, now at 40,000. Been in and out of the shop and now i am being told that up to 1" of swell on the dip stick is normal in these motors between oil changes. Find that hard to believe, thats a lot of diesel, can't be good for for the wear on my engine. Is everyone with my motor seeing this??

Its a common issue in the 6.4 motors, caused by the regen cycle.

Yep... It one of the "wonderful" effects of regen. The fuel gets washed down the cylinders with the oil.....

Seems to be up way too quick, since my last post and oil change went to Prince George and back say 1200 miles and I am up 3/4" again? Must have a leak, they already repaired one about 4000 miles ago. Who's stupid idea was it to put the fuel lines under the valve pan? Back to the shop today, weekly event. I am getting very concerned with the possible premature wear on my engine, but they just keep sending me back out.
