Why I did it!!

Why did I delete the DPF/DOC? Getting 20+ mpg highway, 12+ towing my 9600lb 5ver, with a 75hp KEM custom tune, this oil report sums it all up. The 5000+ miles on this change had about 1500 towing on it.

My stock 6.4 gets 0.5% or less fuel in my oil reports. From the high percentages on your previous reports, something was wrong with your truck. Whether removing the DPF actually resolved the problem or simply masked it is unknown.

What would removing the DPF mask?

isn't it a known issue that the dpf causes fuel to be in the oil if the truck is turned off during regens.

True. Injecting fuel into the cylinders during the exhaust stroke will also cause fuel in the oil.
