6.2 L gasser fuel dilution?

Hey guys I have a couple 6.2 L gas f250 super duties that we use and I have got a couple of bad oil sample reports back on them. 1.7 % fuel dilution and 37 ppm lead. The fuel dilution slightly decreases the viscosity which increases wear. What have you guys been seeing, normally fuel dilution isn't a problem on gas engines. Have around 30,000 miles on them, bought new from the dealer. Let me know what you think, thanks for the input!

I have no input to what may be causing this but I am curious what intervals the oil is being changed at. Is it being done at set mileage or when the oil minder says to change it.

Unless there is a very recent change to the oil monitor (like for '15), there is no "monitoring" of the actual oil. It is strictly an odometer reading of 7500 miles that sets off the "needs oil change" message. Found this out on previous service when the kid at the dealer forgot to reset my service interval. Was confirmed for me by the service manager when I called.

Good to know. I wonder why they don't shorten that interval up Ford knows these trucks are worked.(Or are meant to be)
