There should be a name on it. That's a walbro, but just because yours looks like that doesn't mean it is.

Okay, then I guess the fact that it never did that before has nothing to do with anything, and gas in the oil doesn't seem out of place to you? It's not normal, but maybe your friend can help you fix it. Good luck with it.
