    gas in oil!!!! LOTS aprox 1 gal

    need help......

    have a 07 RXP here, SC, IC. i changed the oil, and winterized it for a nice lady yesterday, who took it to the gas station when i was done, to fill the gas tank, only to pump about a gallon of gas right into the oil fil.

    the machine has not been started. my questions are what to do? ( i know change the oil).

    do i cahnge the oil and run? how many times do you think?
    can i run it without the oil filter, so i do not have to keep changing that?

    any other ideas. sorry, i am not familiar with the oiling system on the seadoo. i do not want to do any damage.

    thank you. zig

    I would get as much oil/gas out as i could before you run the engine. The gas should be sitting on top of the oil so try to pump it out from the top down instead of putting the siphon hose all the way down to start with then do a couple of oil changes running the engine in between oil changes till the oil does not smell like it has gas in it.

    that actually seems like alot of work for a woman to do...lift the seat, locate the oil fill cap, then try to wedge the nozzle in there.

    thanks guys.

    yeah, i figured change, change, change. i just wanted to make sure, the gas was not going to hurt anything. i changed it 5 times, just to be safe. i am going to have her come back, early next sommer, to do again, after they run a few tanks of fuel ( in the gas tank) through it.

    all seems fine now, i just need to re - winterize again.

    that hella funny! just change the oil (sooner that later) before starting it and you will be good to go. no need to change the filter since the oil/gas didnt cycle through it. everyone has gas in their oil anyway...
