The T-Valve when closed isolates the lift cylinder allowing full flow to the hydraulic couplings for the front mounted implements. If you have Gas in the Oil, I would suspect a leaking Fuel Injector, this will affect the left cylinder because the Fuel Injector is mounted in the throttle body slightly off center allowing the fuel to enter the left cylinder. Before starting, I would pull the spark plugs and see if there is fuel in the cylinders. You can pass a propane torch flame across the plug hole and see if it pops. Look also at the Throttle Body just below the Injector for signs of staining.
