2009 yz450f set on its side with fuel valved off while spraying off appeared to leak dark oil and gas. I expected a small amount of gas but the oil like substance has me concerned. Has less than 4 hours on fresh oil. Checked oil after this and it looked good, color and amount.
The substance was really dark and looked like spent oil. All I could smell was the gas it was sitting in and it was thin but pretty sticky.

Any thoughts

I did some investigating and found that the gas that drained on to my old black top driveway drew the oil out of the driveway.
Disregard post.
