Carb most likely has got dirt in it and is not shutting off the fuel and it is leaking into the cyclinder and coming out the muffler. It will need a carb rebuild or a new carb. Make sure to check your oil too as this fuel will leak into the crankcase and fill it with gas. If oil level is high with gas make sure you change oil and filter or engine could get ruined. You will also need news spark plugs as the ones in there are probably gas fouled. Also install a new fuel filter.
