The floater of the carburator is bad(Needle). its leaking gas at the carburator and the gas is coming inside the engine at piston intake valves.
Replace carburator needle that stops the intake of gas at the Carburator.

SOURCE: water in oil

Natural gas and Propane engines do create moisture in the engine because these are cold gases. Therefore, when the engine is done running, the engine is hot and whatever gas is left will condensate and the moisture will drop to the bottom of the engine or oil pan. If this is using these gases then it is normal what you are seeing.

Fuel mixing with oil and filling oil tank and cylinder.


the ethanol gas has a way of ruining the rubber tip on the needle valve (in carburetor). When the rubber tip on that valve or the rubber on the Seat go bad, gas can constantly want to fill the carburetor bowl. so much so that it runs into the engine cylinder and past the Rings to the crankcase.
You can replace the needle valve and seat in the carb which is best OR you can put an in-line shutoff on the fuel line and turn it off when you are not using the generator.
Ethanol gas.. very very bad for carburetors.

Gas in crankcase


Fuel from the fuel tank flows to the carburetor and then on into the engine cylinders. From there it seeps into the crank case.
It's a matter of gravity. The gas will seep until it reaches the lowest point in the engine.
There are two methods of correcting this dangerous problem.
1) When you are done using the engine you can turn it upside down, over a large container that is of sufficient size to contain all the gas and oil that will run out of the engine.
or
2) Turn the fuel valve to it's OFF position when you are done running the engine. This stops the fuel from seeping into the crank case from the carburetor.
(And a heads up from one who has personal, first hand experience. Be sure to OPEN the fuel shut off valve when you think you would like to start the engine.)
If you should have this happen again DO NOT try to start the engine!
(That's one of the reasons The Da always said, "Did you check the oil before you started that engine?")
Dump out all of the oil that has been contaminated with fuel and replace it with fresh oil.

Found gas mixed in with the oil in the crankcase on my John Deere riding mower with the Kohler 398 engine


you have a float control problem that is allowing the fuel tank to drain through the carby past the rings into the crankcase. when stationary. Check for faulty needle and seat operation To be on the safe side in future install an fuel tap in the line before the carby and turn off when not in use.

Gasoline in mixed with oil in the crankcase also oil pouring out from the valve cover. Runs rough and smokes badly. What are the possible causes?


Gasoline in the oil is indication of fuel leaking past the needle and seat when the engine is not running (also high pressure in the fuel tank). You may be able to continue to use the generator with weak needle and seat (change oil) , however you must shut off the fuel when the engine is off. Easy fix however by installing carb kit. Find model number of the engine (stamped on fan cover) and contact small engine repair shop or look on line. Do not run the engine with gas in oil. Good luck.

How much gas to oil ratio to run generator or straight gas


Hi,
Check for a crankcase with oil in it on the motor...if you have oil in the motor already then you do not need to mix it in the gas...
I am very sure that you will find this motor does not need the gas mixed...
Run straight gas... usually it is good to run Prem in small motors..

I have a proforce 2500 watt generator and it cuts out is this caused by low oil? if I change oil how much does it get?


Low oil doesn't usually make engines cut out. Clean the air filter, change the plug and wire. If this doesn't help then I think you're looking at a carb. problem. Probably just clogged jets & ports. It's very common on small engine carbs. It shouldn't take more than 2 quarts of oil. Probably not even one.

Generator is burning oil and choking out


You have/had too much oil in it. After it is brought down to proper level, it may have to burn the oil that is in areas that it should not be in. Another thing that may cause this, is a dirty air filter, can cause enough suction to pull oil around valves, and other places a clean filter will not. It may have oil in the filter too.
