Hello

if you have a lot of fuel in the oil then its possible that one or more of the injectors is leaking or dribbling fuel into the cylinders

so it would be worthwhile trying a bottle of injector cleaner into the tank as a first step and if that doens't help then consider removing the injectors and having them ultrasonically cleaned and flow tested
