Hi Old, Thanks for the correction. I was going from what I've seen such as when I drained my 850. It appeared that the oil came out first and that the water was sitting on top of it in the pan. I always understood oil to be heavier than water. I guess I should have examined it closer. At any rate, water in oil is a problem.

Think about the Gulf when there is a oil spill.
The oil floats on the water because it weighs less.

Per gallon
Water weighs 8.34 lbs
Diesel weighs 7.15 lbs so it will float on water
Oil weighs 6.84 lbs so it will float on diesel
And gasoline weighs 6.07 lbs so it would float on top of all of this.

Yep water in oil not a good thing. Think about what happens to water in the sediment bowl of a tractor. You see the water on the bottom and the gas floating on top. Oil does the same thing if left sit a few hours so that the oil and water separates. If left long enough like that you can drain antifreeze out of an oil pan and if careful even save most of the antifreeze to be used again.
