When changing your oil you smelled fuel in your oil. What could cause this?

Engine running rich. Get this fixed ASAP and do not drive until you do. Serious damage will occur to the engine. If you have electronic fuel ignition and you pump your gas pedal before starting, this can add un-burned fuel to your engine oil.
