Question about 2004 Mazda RX-8
It usually is evident. It may sound odd, but if you take out the oil dipstick and smell it, you should be able to smell gas if it's in there. I would still recommend changing the oil just to be safe. Fuel in the oil could ruin the apex seal on the rotors and repairing that will cost alot more than an oil change. Also make sure that whoever changes it uses 5W-20 Non-synthetic oil. Synthetic oil will break down parts in the engine. I hope I could help.
