Gas In My Oil "a Lot"

I put 5 gallons of gas in my tank two weeks ago and then parked my 1980 CJ5
It has bee sitting ever since. I just tried to set the timing on it only to realize it's out of gas? Some one stole it? I added about a gallon more to start the jeep.
It started but was running very bad, next thing I saw was oil under my jeep?
At a closer look the oil was mostly gas? Pulled the dip stick and my engine was full of gas. All the way up to the top of dip stick? Things could have gone really bad.....
How did my gas get from my tank into my engine is my question?

Only 2 ways in that I can think of.... from carb or your mechanical fuel pump. Most likely the pump! Direct access to the oil from there.

That's what I though. Fuel pump. The diaphragm is bad and all my gas went right into the engine,
