it sounds like you have oil blow by which means you'll need new rings in the distant future. have a compression test done. pray a whole lot.getting your engine rebuilt won't be cheap.

so... did he mean the new oil that he just put in smells like gas? i think not, he probably noticed the old oil was very gassy, i would think you probably have an ignition problem, meaning a cylinder or two doesn't burn the gas that is injected into the cylinder, the gas will wash down the cylinder wall into your oil and voila smells like gas, if the problem isn't dealt with the you'll have very excessive wear on the cylinder wall.
