Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! You say vent tube? Where is the fuel? Could fuel be coming from carburetor throat and draining toward the vent? The vent comes from the crankcase, and there should be no fuel there. If the vent is the one on the carburetor, the float level may be too high, and needs adjustment.
