The oil smells a a bit like gasoline especially after about 2-3k miles when I check the oil with the dipstick and then smell it.
As I was informed through another thread, that gasoline is penetrating the rings and diluting the oil when a car runs rich.
Check out this thread:
"Any fanatics religiously change oil @ 2_5K intervals or less"
Does anybody else have an explanation?

84 190E 2.3 black/grey 64K miles (wrecked)
85 190E 2.3 maroon/palomino 92K miles
88 300E desert red/palomino 204k miles
(made to look like a '94-95)
92 400E desert taupe/creme beige 120K miles
(converted to 94-95 E420 looks)
