Oil level

After running a while on an oil change, I know you guys have noticed an increase of oil on the stick due to the fuel being injected in. Was wondering if any of you guys are draining out some to keep the oil level right on the full mark or just letting it ride?

Little more info.... Have 4000 miles on this oil change and was trying to wait till 5000 miles. But the oil level has increased on my dipstick by about 1/16" kind of got me worried that mine may have too much fuel delution to wait till 5000 miles? Trying to wait till 5000 and send off to Blackstone for analysis. Not sure I should wait...

You can wait. 1/16 on the stick is nothing. You can always try and suck out a sample and send it in now they are pretty quick to reply.

Our truck calls for 13qts of oil and after a local shop did the oil change they thought there wasn't enough oil in the engine. The oil was just at the base of the range on the dipstick. I showed them in the manual that it does indeed need only 13qts.

After putting a hundred or so miles on it I pull the dipstick again and sure enough it was now in the middle. I called a friend who has the same year truck and he agreed, the oil on the dipstick after a change shows low on his and once he added a quart only to have to drain it back out after awhile.

Maybe someone knows why this is on engines? But in the meantime I do not think your engine is putting fuel in your oil.

So my question is is that 13qts after you fill the filter up?

This is correct, I buy 3 gallon jugs and 1 quart bottle. The quart bottle goes in the new filter and the 3 one gallon jugs go in the top. After latting it idle for a few minutes and rechecking the oil is spot on the full mark. I was just concerned of having to much over a few thousand miles due to the fuel dilution with the regen processes. Was wondering if it were ok to let it ride or would it be better to drain a little out.
