If your air filter is like mine (1968 220d), it is supposed to have oil in it. Is your air filter housing actually "filling up" with oil or just has some oil at the bottom? If it is truly filling up, that is too much oil to come from blowby, but probably means you have a busted vacuum pump diaphragm or a busted injection pump diaphragm.
