Question,

I have a chevy LS3 engine from Danzio in my 6100 truck. Truck only has 300 test miles on it. Engine runs great. However the engine oil turns black very quickly and the used oil always has a gas smell to it. I don't have a lot of experience with the LS3 or race tuning. Can anyone else me if their LS3 used oil has a gas smell to it? I use Maxima 10w30 full synthetic oil. Oil gets changed about every 150 miles.

I also just had the rear main oil seal fail as well (which sucks).

Any thoughts or past experiences welcome.

Thanks,

Why don't you contact Danzio and have it checked out?
