Gas in oil....not a 2-stroke

My father in law bought a new Polaris 4 wheeler from a "not too bright" dealer about a year ago. It's a 4 stroke and he has found gas in the oil. Strange thing is, it will fire up and run fine (not even any smoke).
Any thoughts?

If there is gas in the oil.....DO NOT RUN THE ENGINE!, replace the oil before you should even attempt it, you probablly either have a hole in the float and its sinking to the bottom letting gas go by, or the inlet needle or seat aren't seating well...... or the float has hung up.

Lightbulb gas in oil not 2 stroke

Again---DO NOT CRANK---Another problem you could have is your vent hoses on you carb can be stopped up from ridding in mud or sand.
