I've seen no data but, I think fuel dilution happens at a higher rate with a cold and warming up engine. I suspect this may be the case since UOAs show higher fuel dilution with short trip driving. ED

Yep the manufacturer's have little control its all gone to government and CAFE. Its time to pull some of this back and take a look at is it really doing us some good or is it just part of the plan to get us out of our cars.

I don't understand why the government keeps attacking car manufacturers for emissions when they are virtually clean and when industry accounts for 70% of global emissions and has far less strict standards.

Because the common people don't have the lobbyists that big business has.

Some engines, particularly some direct injection engines, just put more fuel into the oil all the time. But as a general rule, fuel>oil is worst before the engine reaches operating temperature, the mixture leans out, and blow-by goes down because all the engine internals expand.
