It is not carburated,it has throttle body,which is fuel injected,and can only get in your oil,if there is a gasket leak,such as intake or head,and could all so be bad ring,s that would let fuel pass them,have your engine compression checked,it will tell you which one it is.

head gasket would let oil in your antifreeze change oil drive it for a while and see if it happens again
