Ayuh,... Sounds like the fuel tank shut-off was left On...

Drain the oil, 'n change it....

Probably oughta pull the carb, 'n blow all the crud outa it too...
Buy a Kit for it, it'll come with a new needle valve, 'n seat...

The only route for the gas to get there, is through the carb, 'n past the rings...

Likely the former but gas can get in the oil if the head is cracked or warped as well.

Try the first advise about changing the oil then consider a compression check.
