    a certain amount of fuel goes back to the fuel tank if a internal seal in pump has gone then engine oil will also be returned to the tank...sounds like a new pump to me

    How often do you check your oil, Just trying to work out how bad it is because a little bit of oil in the fuel wont hurt it but it depends over what sort of period.
