Hi , looks like you have a carb problem , fuel is getting past the needle valve either getting stuck thro wear or a minute piece of grit holding it open allowing fuel to run down the inlet tract into the motor if you do not shut the fuel off it will drain the tank . [ this happens a lot with lawn tractor B+S motors ] . simple fix [ subject to carb access ] is replace needle valve and or seat + fuel filter and switch fuel off when not using the machine .
