When a fuel injector is stuck open, the fuel will flood out. Gasoline will definitely get into the oil when this is the case.
If the fuel pressure in your car is too high (above 7 psi) that may cause gasoline to get into the engine oil.
Gas could also leak into your intake manifold if there is a carburetor problem.
An inoperative injector system can also cause this problem, because if the engine is not firing appropriately, the gasoline will end up running down the walls of the cylinders.
Check to see if the float in the gas tank is rising the way it should be rising or if it needs an adjustment. You will not be able to look at your gas gauge and get an accurate reading If the float is not functioning properly.
Your engine may be running rich, with too much gas going into the engine and too little air.
Check to see if the oil level might be really high. This can also cause trouble
Two ways to tell if you may have a problem with gas in your engine oil are:
1. If you start to smell a strong odor of gasoline while you are driving.
2. You notice white clouds of smoke coming out of your tailpipe.
If a large amount of gasoline does get into the engine oil, change the oil immediately upon fixing the problem that has allowed this to happen.
