Kohler 5E. White Smokey water and gas smell coming out while running

Hi all. Thank you in advance for any assistance with this. I took the covers off today when I got back in. No water in oil. All fluids at proper levels. Did not pull plugs yet but I will. The mechanic changed oil, filter and impeller spring of this season. I live in the north east so obviously season is short. I initially thought it was some grease used in the impeller job but thatís not it. Flow coming out the hole seems normal. It does not feel rough to me. Made a pot of coffee this morning and it did not complain but I wanted to shut it down because we were hooked up with other boats and the smell of gas would be bad. No rainbows in the water just cloudy white water. Again thanks so much

John

Are you using last yrs gas (Ethanol gas?
Use new gas E-gas is bad after 2mos or so.Preferably use non-egas.
We can still get pure gas if we buy Supreme.
