If one or more injectors are sticking you'll get a condition called "washdown", in which liquid fuel coats the cylinder walls and gets past the piston, into the crankcase. If it has carbs. on it, the problem would be leaky needle valves, gas in your floats (floats leaking) or mis adjusted floats. Make shure the gas cap is vented and not preasurizing the fuel,forcing it into the pan
