sounds like the governor needs adjusting...., as for the gas in the oil.....one point i make sure off, change the oil before you use it!.... it's the float, could be sticking, or it has filled up with gas ( may feel heavy or slosh) or it needs a new inlet needle and seat. that or it isn't adjusted correctly, leaving the inlet needle open. or it could be you maybe rebuilt the carb? inlet needle and seat done... seat put in wrong or not in good...

Be sure the governor adjustment is correct! Loosen the screw holding the arm to the shaft, turn the clip counterclockwise while holding the arm to the left and tighten the screw down. If this is correct already and you know the linkage is correct then you will have an internal governor problem...either the gear or the spool or both.
