My understanding  is that leaky injectors allow fuel from
the pressurized line to leak down into the intake after the
engine is shut off. From there, the fuel leaks down through
open valves, past piston rings, and into the oil sump. Over
time, this will dilute your oil and cause bad things to happen.
Run crappy? It only means hard starting while pressure
re-builds in the fuel line. If it runs crappy after that,
you have other problems.
 My understanding based on Motronic, not CIS injection.
