    12.7 Detroit in a 2000 T660. I gained about 1-1.5 gallon of "oil" the past oil change. The oil isn't milky so water isn't it. Could I somehow be dumping fuel into the pan with an injector? Thanks in advance.

    Better get your oil analyzed! It will be worth the cost to find out what is going on.

    Your not pullin the dipstick with it running are you?

    you always check the oil after it's been shutoff a few minutes.

    Not going by the dipstick at all. When I drain it I have 1-1.5 gallon more than I put in. But since you mentioned that, it is about an inch high on it and it had set for a few hours

    Drop a drip of oil on to some news paper.
    Then see how the oils blotch dissipates.
    If you get a black spot in the middle and a oily but much lighter spot growing round the central black spot you can bet this is the lighter diesel oil.
    You then have diesel in the oil.
    Most of the time this is from a dripping injector.

    If you're gaining its fuel no way for oil.
