I recently changed the oil and it seemed to have gas in.
3 weeks later it is green and smells like gas again WTF.
This oil isn't cheap I can't afford to change it every month.

Is the level going up? Used 4 stroke will typically smell like gas.

what oil are your running? The only fluid that should be green is the coolant but that should give your oil a milky look...did you run over a gremlin or leprechaun?

Does your machine have a fuel shut off, my 05 500 had the needle valve leaking and before I changed it I would shut off the fuel valve and that solved it.

If you are worried send a sample of it to Blackstone Labs for an analysis. It will tell you what percentage of gas and whatever else is in your oil. Go to the Blackstone web site and they will send you a sample bottle for free. Cost around 20 bucks but it could be what you need to do to find out what is going on in your motor.

Ditto that x2 TXRonnie. Send my oil out on superduty. Best advice.

Much simplier to send sample to blackstone and let them tell you what is in oil. Quit guessing.

Why piss away more money on oil till you no what's going on.
