Oil smells like GAS...not a good sign. Under hood ...see if you can find the FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR. You go on line with your Make /Model/Year to see a picture of what it looks like. There should be a small rubber hose attached. Pull the hose and look/smell inside. Smell like gas???...you have a bad fuel pressure regulator. Do not try to start the engine. Big Trouble. You must CLEAR the engine of excessive fuel. Drain the engine oil....remove spark plugs...clear cylinders of excessive oil....replace FPR...engine oil.. and spark plugs. You might be able to save the engine. If all of these suggestions are beyond your experience with Auto repair...have the vehicle towed to a repair facility. Good Luck.

Sounds like you have a leaking fuel injector or bad pressure regulator. Check fuel pressure, if pressure is within spec, check all fuel injectors
