      Gas in Oil y’all.

      During my last routine oil change, I noticed a significantly potent fuel/solvent smell in my oil. I run Mobil1 10W-30 Full Synthetic in my ‘06 V50 T5. This was paired with a sharp decrease in fuel economy.

      I went ahead and changed my Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor, and checked back on the oil 2 weeks later. It’s still got gas in it, and it’s an orangey color.

      Checked it in VIDA, and all pressures are good, and there’s no codes for the fuel system.

      Dropped the car off at Volvo last week, and they couldn’t find anything wrong. Has anyone had any issues like this before? It’s not misfiring or roughing significantly rough. It does idle a bit rough, but paired with the ridiculous fuel usage, that’s about it.

      Any ideas? My next move is to replace all of the injectors.

      Possible fuel injector sticking open. Fuel continues to seep into the cylinder when the engine is off and past the rings into the oil.

      If I had an injector sticking open when off, could it still behave normally while the engine is running?
