Loosing precision ?

I am trying to create a feature class from a csv document. I have done it running the program as well as doing it manually. However, I seem to loose precision on some columns. For example, if one of the columns has the following values : "0,0,4,3,5,0.1"

It will sometimes get rid of the ".1" and make the column "0,0,4,3,5,0" .

Now .. Sometimes my column is formatted as "General", and it works and no precision is lost. However, other times I will just loose precision, but as soon as I format the column to have decimals. It works . My question is:

Is the a specific reason why this could sometimes work as general and sometimes not?Any Ideas?
