Usually this is caused by a leaking float valve in the carburetor. It seeps into the engine (when not running), past the piston rings, into the oil. Also you should check the float level.

Hi, I have a 13.5hp Briggs & Stratton motor which starts and will only run on choke slow rpms and mild smoke.


check the point where the fuel hose goes to the fuel tank
there is very fine filter in the hose that could be blocked preventing full fuel flow
only running on choke indicates insufficient fuel flow

Why is there gas in the oil of my 1983 goldwing


Hi, Anonymous you're getting ready to go riding you pull out the dipstick to check your oil level and are greeted with the unmistakable smell of gasoline. What happens next depends on the following:
1. You have experienced this before and do not start the engine but do change your oil and filter leaving it 1 quart low until the engine reaches operating temperature then top off as necessary.
2. The amount of time your bike has been sitting since the last time the engine was running.
3. The amount of gas and contaminants in the tank.
4. The oil pump location, exterior or interior.
5. The condition of your petcock gasket/seal/diaphragm.
If your gas tank was low and you start the engine probably nothing you would notice but if your gas tank was full and you start your engine the oil/gas mixture can blow into your air filter, come streaming out of your crankcase breather hose, and launch your oil tank cap followed by a blast of oil. The mess can be minor or you need to call a Hazmat team for assistance. This will also happen if you overfill your oil tank.
Next is the how and why gas can get into your oil tank/system:
a. The vacuum petcock rubber/diaphragm fails, which allows gas to flow from the fuel tank through the petcock, through the vacuum line into the intake manifold, then into the combustion chamber, where it seeps past the piston rings and into the bottom end.
3. Nonvacuum petcocks that are not turned to the off position will patiently wait until contaminants from the gas tank build up in between the carburetor needle and seat breaking the seal thus inviting gas to enter the combustion chamber eventually finding it's way into the bottom end and the oil tank.

Oil light came on, oil is full but smells like gasoline?


Water doesn't have to be in oil for bad head gasket,gasket can blow between cylinders and be bad.You can drain oil to see if it's mixed with gas.You can have a compression check on all cylinders first and that will tell you what is wrong,also check the plugs and see .,timing could be off.Could have too much oil and straining the oil pump,change oil and filter and see what happens since it doesn't cost much.

My 2000 Saturn L with 2.2 engine . I changed oil and found about four quarts of gas in the oil .put new oil in ran the engine the next day I check oil.The oil level was really high on dip stick and smells...


You have a serious/dangerous breach between the fuel supply and lubrication system. Oil is a bit flammable itself without gasoline being added. Used to see this with mechanical fuel pumps getting a hole in the rubber diaphragm and dumping gas into the crankcase. However yours is an electric pump. This has to be something that an experienced GM mechanic has seen before. I think that 2.2 was used in many GM products so a Chevy dealer should be able to help you. This is one problem which I would take to a dealer first, just to get an estimate.

Just bought 2008 model 650 can-am max xt dealerhad 41 miles on it,they changed oil before i took it home ,it set in my garage for two days , when i went to ride it i checked the oil an it was over full...


If the oil is milky it has a bad and leaking seal somewhere that the gas is gitting in, or it has water in it. Water does not mix well with oil as you may know so I'd guess its gas is getting in. If it does run, change the oil right away then see if the oil develops the milky look again. Probably a seal would be my guess. Good luck.
