Angry fuel in oil, runs poorly in cold and damp weather

I am a pipeline welder and use my truck every day for work.

Like some of you guys i am getting fuel in my oil and ford sais this is normal. At one point i got so much fuel in my oil it actually shut my truck down due to lack of oil pressure. When i draind it I filled up a 5 gallon bucket to the top. I change my oil every 5,000 miles an every time i take between 4.5 and 5 gallons out. "THIS IS NORMAL" Yah right.

The other problem i have is every time it rains or is below 50 degrees my truck gets terrible fuel mileage, the engine surges, misses, and breaks up. It also loose power. Also while driving at highway speed "if you can get it their" you can feel the engine miss. Last time this happened, I had just changed the oil and i drove about 90 miles. When i got to were i was going, for the heck of it i checked th oil and it was so diluted it would hardly stick to the dip stick. All i got were tiny air bubbles.

Their is a tsb #20116 that discribes to a t what my truck is doing. The recomended fix for the tech to perform, Do not try any further repairs until the ford engineers can figure out how to fix the problem. I depend on my truck every day to make a living. What in the hack am i supposed to do? Total time at the shop 5 weeks, total lost wages 25,000.

By the way their is a for engineer going to look at it tomarrow. He sais he can fix the problem but when i talked to him he could't even tell me what kind of problems i am having. I am not happy
