The Ford technical bulletin on checking the oil for overfull describes only pushing the dip stick in to where the cap just touches the top of the dip stick tube, not all the way in.
This whole thing has been very frustrating as mine is one of the 6.4's that has fuel in the oil as proven by oil analysis (4% last change and high aluminum and iron). The technical hotline tells dealers that it is normal to have fuel in the oil and suggest even that a quart of fuel per 1,000 miles is acceptable. Mine has been in the shop for over 7 days for this issue (three different trips). THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT THE OVERFILL SITUATION.
I have been around diesels all my life and any level of fuel in the oil is a bad thing, I don't care what Ford says about it. This may very well be the last Ford I ever own. (My company currently owns 8 super duty's and has over the last 30 years owned over 40 Ford pickups).
