Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. It sounds like your needle in the carburetor isn't sealing with the inlet valve ov the carburetor, because of this gas is bypassing up over the float and coming up the main jet and out the carburetor, it may also have gotten down into the crankcase and mixed with the oil , check the oil to see if it's thin or smells like gas
