Default Prairie 300 4x4 leaking gas

the gas is leaking out thru the carburetor drain tube. Is this a carb problem or maybe the fuel on/off/res switch? it will drain a tank of gas in a couple days.

Sounds to me that the float is stuck or it needs a new needle seat/valve. When the bowl is full the float raises and shut the flow of fuel to the bowl by closing the needle valve. Sometimes you can just tap the bowl with a screw driver if the float is stuck. If you haven't run it in a while it may be "gummed" up inside. Also, the ethanaol fuels are reaking havoc on older fuel systems.
