delet with spartan or keep warnty

I am pretty new to the sight. Brought a 2009 f350 drw. With 25000 miles it has extended warenty that was purchased. I had the oil chaged at 22,018, then drained 3 qaurts at 22,323 due to over full. I am thinking dpf is adding fuel. So my thoughts are should i dich the warenty and bullet proof the truk for long life. ( that was delete.)

I would get an oil analysis done and see whats going on. If that much fuel is making it into the oil then you may have a more serious issue, but deleting will definitely help prolong the life of the truck and prevent any more fuel dilution. Hopefully it is just the dpf but thats alot of extra oil. are you sure it was fuel and that the dealer didnt over fill it when they did it? I say get the oil analysis and see how much fuel is present. if it is normal levels then your good to go ahead and delete. if you have more than the norm, i would get it looked into before you delete. blackstone-labs.com does oil analysis for $25 dollars and a lot of forum members use them. I'd say deleting is a lot more beneficial than warranty if you maintain your truck. if you are not on top of maintenance then keep the warranty.

has to be something similar if he is gaining 3 qts. in 300 miles. Your mileage has to be in the dumps also. I would get that thing to the dealer before real damage is done if not already. once ya get it taken care of. drive 500 miles and let it do a regen, make sure it isn't making oil and then delete.
