EB II making oil! a litre a week!

Suspect petrol leaking into oil. Because it is diluting, the oil pressure is dropping. Thought that it was faulty injectors, filling the manifold over night, however starts fine each morning and have had the injectors tested. Where is the fuel getting in??? has anybody had this problem??? I dont get it. HELP PLEASE

No, not at all - maybe a little when it starts up. It runs fine.

Re: EB II making oil! a litre a week!

I say up front that I am no expert, but your prob intrigues me.
The only possible explanation I can think of is fuel siphoning back from the carbon cannister.
Are you parking on a slope for any length of time (at work?) If so and especially if after a relatively short drive, it can allow the fuel back into the manifold.
I have seen this in one other case quite a while ago, so I know it can happen.

No, we come from the darling downs, you can see for 50kms!!!! This problem has me stumped. If the oil level is on full, and you go for a drive for 2 hrs, let the motor cool overnight - the next morning the oil level will be noticeably higher.

And it's definitely oil-colured, not white?
Got me too You could try taking the carbon canister line off and seeing if that fixes it?
