My guess would be a set of very leaky injectors - system pressure should stay 
at around 3 bar when the engine is off, and if the injectors are shot there's 
more than enough pressure to push a few fluid ounces of petrol into the inlet 
manifold.  Depending on circumstances, it could migrate into any cylinders 
which have their inlet valves fully or partially open and trickle down past the 
rings into the oil.
