Paul- I would suggest an oil analysis. It's possible that you are getting diesel into the lube oil, there aren't too many other ways that the level can go up. You might be able to tell if it's diesel contamination by the feel test, suck some oil out of the engine and compare to fresh oil between your fingers.
