    Would it matter if he was using dollar general oil?

    That sucks man. Very sorry to hear that. Good opportunity to go 840 though!

    A stuck injector is the only thing I have heard of that will get gas in the oil. It happens sometimes. Gotta check your oil before every ride.

    Where are you located? If you're close, I can get you built pretty quickly. Or I can get you the part to re-build. PM me.

    Way to many projects to list.
    Okay, I basically don't know what the plan is......LOL

    We all started running 15w40 rotella and have had no problems with that oil. I thought about switching to that synthetic rotella, but that old rotella has done good so far.

    Wow. I am not a royal purple fan, but didn't think it would cause engine problems. Crazy.

    I run amsoil 10w 40. I do like rotella though. It's the diesel oil huh?

    Yeah, I run that rotella in everything! My dodge diesel, generator, lawn mowers, and my sons 450 grizzly. It's good and cheap!
