This or change your oil more frequently to prevent any pre-detonation. Catch can is on my list of things to do. For now I'm just changing the oil more frequently and using Ford Semi Synthetic rather than the normal full synthetic that I normally do. Haven't experience any problems but I don't like it either.

I've changed @ 5k since it was new but when I noticed the gas smell my oil only had a little over 1k on it. I run whatever the manual says, 5-20 and the fl820s filter (I think).

I can't really tell from your post but have you been changing it yourself since new or was this the first time you changed it? Also are you saying that you've always checked the oil regularly and this is the first time you noticed the smell?

Sorry - it's been changed every 5k at the Ford house since new. I've checked the level here and there for road trips but never actually smelled the oil until this last time when I noticed the gas odor.

I bought my 2012 last summer with 32K miles on it. The first oil change I didn't do myself but I've done it since the second one starting every 5K miles and now every 3-4K miles. I've noticed the smell since the first oil change that I did. I Google'd it and found out that it was "normal" for the EcoBoost motors but not necessarily for the other Ford DI motors. My Lincoln MKZ has the same 3.5 L V6 sans the turbos and I have no such issues with fuel oil dilution. Next mod will be the oil separator.

I'd send in a sample to Blackstone Labs. They can tell you how much fuel is in the oil and also what they are seeing in similar vehicles.

Guys on the EB and F150 forums are reporting results back from blackstone in the 4-5% range for fuel dilution. there's no way in hell I could be convinced that 5% fuel/oil dilution is acceptable.

FI + DI engines are going to suffer from some, and I understand that. but adding 1-2 qts of fluid over a 5-10k interval is just fucking nuts.

I guess I need to add a catch can to the EB, i've changed the oil at 4500 miles with Mobil 1 Syn 5-30 w/FoMoCo filter and I'm going on right at 6k miles now. We do mostly highway and very little WOT. I didn't notice any gas smell the first time, but I'll be keeping an eye nose out for any gas smell.
