The oil appearing milky would most likely be from condensation, mainly from changing climates. The best way to avoid water getting into the oil is to check the dipstick often, and at the first sign of any foaming or milky color to the oil, start and run the engine for a while to flash off the moisture. If the oil continues to look light brown, change it after running the engine long enough to get it good and hot before draining. Using the synthetic 5W-30 motor oil recommended in the owner’s manual should also give the moving parts of your engine better lubrication and keep condensation in the crankcase to a minimum. Additionally, please note that we would recommend contacting an independent authorized service provider in your local area for diagnostic work should issues persist, or if you believe that something is wrong with your personal generator.
