Oil smells like gas

My car has been hesitating badly. Today, happened again, and the check engine light came on. While doing a little investigation, i noticed the oil had a gas smell to it. I don't know if the two are related, but i would appretiate advice or explanations for both. It is a 1998 Mazda 626 LX 4-cylinder.

Could be a bad fuel pressure regulator. Check the vacuum hose going to it for liquid fuel. If some is found, replace it.
