    Hey, 360 Mod, should the oil have a smell of gas in it? Oil doesn't even have a hint of oil smell to it!

    Your oil definitely should not smell like gas. One of your fuel injectors might be stuck open or malfunctioning. A malfunctioning fuel pressure regulator may also be the culprit. If your ECU is not stock, then it can also be caused by a bad tune.

    That's bad!

    Don't drive the car until the problem is found and corrected. Did you severely flood the engine at some point? Also, excessive idling of the engine can dump raw gas into the oil. If any one of these 2 conditions caused it, you'll get off easy. Just change the oil and filter.
