    Change the oil and make sure there isn't actually gas in it. If so, you could be getting blow by (piston rings).

    I've also heard that it could be caused by the cold weather.

    Do you let it idle for really long periods of time? 75k isn't a lot of miles to need rings.

    Does it smoke? Maybe you have a set of rings lined up. I don't know enough about to Toyota's to know if it's a three or two ring set up.

    WTF is Gaz? Is this some sort of gasoline with an additive in it?

    Have the oil anylized. The smell alone is hard to gauge how much may (or may not) be in it.
