What is the temperature where you are?
I had 3 failed GP's and the truck would start fine down to freezing temps, and even then not too hard, but I would cloud out my driveway every day. I would start there.
Driving habits, like alot of short trips can cause fuel to show in the oil. Failed injector O rings cause the oil to enter the fuel, causing the black fuel filter that is a common indicator, not fuel to enter the oil. The oil is at a higher pressure than the fuel so it's the one that goes where it shouldn't. Just like when the inner seal on the oil cooler fails, oil enters the coolant because it's at a higher pressure, but no coolant enters the oil
