Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.
You can remove the fuel hose from your carburetor, then drain your fuel into a suitable container.
You can also remove the bolt from the bottom of your carburetor. I am referring to the bolt that secures your fuel bowl to the bottom of your carburetor. After you remove the bolt, your gas will drain through the hole in your fuel bowl.
You and I can continue from here.
I am back with you. Is your engine a Briggs and Stratton 205cc?
Thanks for this information. Please take a look at the image below.
It shows the area of your engine, where your fuel hose and your carburetor, is located.
I am also attaching a link to some additional information that is helping.

If your engine still will not run, even with fresh gas, then you will need to give your carburetor a really good cleaning.
I would soak it first, then use a small wire and carburetor cleaner to clean every small hole you see in your carburetor.

You can try it first without removing your carburetor. Just remove your fuel bowl and use spray carburetor cleaner, to clean your fuel bowl, and the underside of your carburetor. If this does not work for you, then you will need to perform the steps I posted above.
