The fuel in oil and oil light are prob un-related, the oil code is prob a oil pressure switch gone bad, very common. Either pull it out and clean it with brake cleaner or replace it with a new 1, its the grey sensor under your intake manifold.
If your running open loop then its prob running too cold and gassing up the oil. engine temps should be around the 70c mark and oil 95c.
I had the same issues, its less apprent when racing as you are pushing the engine very hard and its therefore running allot hotter then it would if your just having a mess around. I had same issues with mine, went over to a thermo controlled openloop setup and soo far all seems ok.
Hope that helps R88

Is you oil level rising atal???
The oil will take on a petrol smell but if its not rising then I doubt that you are getting much dilution. Especially running closed loop as it keeps the oil hot enough to burn off any fuel/water that gets into the oil.
I still think that the oil warning is prob your oil press sensor, did it go off straight after a WOT run or during a hard turn???
I would whip the sensor out give it a clean and do a oil change, how many hours do you have on the oil???
