Change your oil ASAP. The gas is not good for the bearings.

How long has it been since your last oil change? You have to change oil every 3 months or 3,000 miles. Its cheap and will save you money in the long run.

If it is that bad get it changed right away, you don't want to blow off the oil pan or valve covers.check the PCV system make sure it is operating properly, then you want to find out why gas is getting there. Fuel pressure regulators are a high failure item on these, pull of the little vacuum hose on it and just turn on the key, don't start it if you see some fuel coming out of the regulator replace it, if no fuel then great, the next thing to do is to test the injectors for bleed down or pressure drop, Hook up a fuel pressure tester to the test port, block off the return fuel line, turn the key on and off a few times until the fuel pressure gauge quits climbing, turn off the key and watch the gauge it should only drop a lb or two then stop, if it don't stop then chances are good that you have some leaking injectors.

You did put gas in the "gas tank" right? Haha I'm kidding but no I've seen people put trans fluid in the valves(oil hole) and it's funny
