The throttle bodies get quite dirty, must be contaminants in poor fuel surely?
Or poor fuel combined with seals and rubbers on the intake starting to leak?

I would say that is oil breather issue; there is no fuel entering the throttle bodies on that side (the injectors are on the other side). When I've took my airbox off the throttle bodies are spotlessly clean inside.

Surely it's just from oil spray?
