Fuel in the oil

I have a 2015 F250. it currently has 39k miles. I put Amsoil in it at 10k miles and at 20k sent in a sample to Oil Analyzers. They told me it was severely contaminated with fuel and to change it right away. The cleaning exhaust filter light used to come on all the time, so Ford blamed it on that and "fixed" it. Now it never comes on and I still have the contaminated oil. I have now had the oil tested four times with worsening contamination. Now Ford says they expect the engine to dump a quart of fuel into the oil for every 1000 miles. That would add up to 2 gallons of fuel in the oil in a normal oil change interval, and it only has 3.5 gallons of oil to begin with. This sounds like horse hockey to me. Why bother to have oil in it at all if they expect it to be half full of diesel?

Anybody else having this problem? Anyone else having their oil tested and not have a problem? Thanks for any input.

Well considering the information you have posted: 1) Someone needs to put down the shovel. 2) If it sounds like a duck, walks like a duck... 3) I don't have this problem, I'm not testing my oil. 4) I think there is some other issue present especially if you have oil samples and the results.

I'd argue that the dealership never fixed the original issue. Sounds like a motor issue so you should be covered under warranty.

how often are you changing the oil? 10k miles is too long, regardless of what spec is. especially if the truck goes through frequent active regens.
how much oil are you making between changes?

the richest ones are not those who have the most, but those who need the least

The last oil change had 5435 miles on it. The dealership did it so I don't know how much volume they drained. It hasn't gone through a regen in about 10k miles. But I do know that the level showed a full inch above the full on the dipstick. Ford says there is nothing wrong so there is no warranty issue.

An inch up the dipstick after 6k is pretty normal. Do you do much city driving?
Within 10k, it's gone through many regens. Believe me
