Given time the oil will escape past the piston rings with no action from you. When you have the engine reinstalled crank it for several seconds with the spark plugs removed (& the plug holes covered with a cloth) which will eject any excess oil from the cylinders.

Putting petrol directly into the cylinders does not seem like a good idea to me (unless you are wanting to rev the engine before it has built up any oil pressure).
