lads,

i ran my car on petrol for 10 mins or so at idle whilst talking to some mates, (it runs REALLY rough, very lumpy and just sounds like its having a hard time running - proberbly fuel filter and injectors) and when i drove slowly off, my mate told me to stop the car, to come look at the oil patch i left on his driveway! it seems like its dripping from the back of the sump. its never leaked oil before as long as ive had it. it seems like running it on petrol was a bad move... any ideas whats f**k up on it? its due for a service (oil change/filter and all the general stuff)

HELP!
