    gas in oil

    Could be a carb problem - sending more gas into the combustion chamber than can be burned. The bad news is that this condition can quckly wash the cylinders of oil causing rapid and premature wear.

    if you have a manual fuel pump it can be leaking gas into the crank case into the oil :k5:

    Another for running rich. Had that problem before. Q Jets when they are ready for a rebuild are notorious for letting you know.
