Rings aren't seating very fast. How long did you run the factory fill? What were the other two oil changes - oil type & miles? Even with all the fuel, the wear #'s are fine. I'd try some SuperTech dino for 5000 miles and then revisit.

SuperTech dino in a direct injected turbo engine for 5000 miles??? Gosh at least a blend! Or 3000 miles at most! Mobil Super HM blend or Havoline HM blend will do 5k though. And do it cheaply. But I'd stay with synthetic only.

Ford doesn't require anything special oil wise for an eco boost.

Gosh, that's a lot of fuel dilution. On the other hand, look at the test/retest results Parisha reported on his 1.5T Civic: makes one wonder whether these results have value at all.

When did OAI start quantifying fuel dilution above 5%? That used to be the maximum.

the first report i received listed the component as a diesel. they've since amended and now the value is ">5%"

OP, did you notice an increase in crankcase level? Even 5% dilution would add 1/4 or 1/3 of a quart of volume to the sump. Wear metals look OK so maybe even this level of dilution is harmless though worrying.
