Customer Question

I have a 1999 merc 60/45 jet with the oil resevoir on the motor. My solid alarm started beeping. It also seems at full throttle the rpm's go up and down sometimes until I back off on it. I dumped the oil out of the resevoir to check the sensor on the bottom. Upon doing this I noticed the oil was very thin and smelled strongly of gas. Come to mention it,it didn't seem like my level was dropping lately. Is it possible for fuel to back feed into the oil resevoir?
