Oil leak, gas smell

The car has never leaked before. I just put the car in the garage because it was super cold. I noticed Oil on the floor. I checked the oil and there is too much in there, way too much and it smells like gas. It looks like the leak is the rear main but hard to tell without a lift. Thoughts, where do I start.

Sometimes when you run a car in cold weather the fuel richens and what little bit that doesn't burn gets in oil.also not a good idea to overfill the oil.will cause gaskets and seals to leak

Oil wasn't overfilled It was perfect before. Maybe an oil change and see what happens

It's possible that you have a fuel injector that is leaking...

So i found out something else. My ex put Synthetic oil in the car because she knew thats what I used on my new cars. Maybe that cause the leak. It was done recently. Maybe an oil change with castrol high mileage and see what happens
