Probably a leaking fuel injector. Pull the spark plugs and see which plug is dark and wet and smells of fresh fuel. That cylinder's fuel injector should be pulled and checked for leakage. Gas will drip from the injector and seep past the piston rings where it ends up in the crankcase and dilutes the oil.

Causes of gas in oil
On my 94 Chevy blazer, gas in the oil was caused by a ruptured diaphragm in the fuel pressure regulator that is attached to the fuel injector. Flooding the engine. An over abundance of gas in your cylinders will wash down your cylinder walls and accumulate in the oil pan.

Peugeot 207 oil level increase

Check to see if gas is getting into the oil which would raise the level. This can happen from flooding, i.e. a leaky injector dumping too much gas or possibly gas blowby past the piston rings and ending up in crankcase. If gas is in the oil most likely an injector is bad. Smell the oil and check to see if it smells like gas and or check viscosity of oil.. thin oil

I think there is gas in my oil

The cause of gas in the oil may be several things. If the engine floods all the time or has flooded. If you have trouble starting it in the morning and fuel goes into the oil sump. If your truck has a carburator the needle is probably bad. In any case, have youe engine checked. gas in the oil is not good. Change the oil and filter. If it continues take the truck to a good mechanic that you can trust..

Oil and gas

your rings are giving out. the gas is seeping through them letting it get into your oil.

If enough gas gets into your oil than it will not let the vehicle start. it will foul out the plugs.
