I just had my 2016 ext serviced today with the 3rd or 4th software update. They changed the oil and I imagine it was some kind of bandaid for the gas in the oil issue. It feels like there is a loss in power. Anyone know really what they did to my ffing car? Lol

I'm sure you had the oil dilution update. Basically they are speeding up the warming of the engine by updating the A/C control unit behavior and idle speed during warmup.

Oil dilution is at it's worst in cold weather when you take short drives where the engine never reaches normal operating temps. This should help.

I've been having excessive fuel in my oil year round. It doesn't even need to be cold.
