Oil in fuel???!

I had some bad injectors so I had some oil getting into my fuel I havent changed it yet since then and now I believe the viscosity is to low and I have to put the pedal to the floor to get it to start! would low viscosity oil cause this?

Are you getting fuel in the oil? That would make more sense. BTW, fuel in the oil will damage many seals and bearings! Not fixing that at the first sign of trouble can become very expensive! Same for oil or fuel in the coolant.

What steps have you taken to protect the engine from further damage?
How much fuel is now in your oil? Has you oil seemed to increase on the stick? Does it smell like fuel?

Don't run it until you fix it!

The oil is full but seem very thin and it does smell like diesel.. I have a fuel preperator. I am going to be changing the oil tomorrow any recommendations on oil? and I was also thinking about doing some rev x when I do change it tom

5w40 synthetic. However, Since you had a problem, why not change it out with 5w40 dino oil, use it as a "rince cycle" for a few days, then swap in the synthetic.
