We will be right over to help (where do you live?)

Does the tank continue to leak until it is empty?

You filled the tank to the brim? - don't do that . . .

Can you see more specifically where the gas it leaking from? Fuel line, carburetor, etc.?

Can you slowly turn the engine over with the pull starter? Does the carb puke gas when you do this?

From my experience it could be 2 places both you will need to take the lower plastic cover off.

First the fuel line coming out of the bottom of the tank could be leaking from that.

There is no overflow that I am aware of other then coming back out of the fill hole.

Isn't there a known issue with these machines having fuel tanks that crack with time and leak everywhere? I seem to remember a recall and everything to replace the tanks.

I have the same machine and had same issue!

It appears the screws (for the bowl) backed out slightly as it's a plastic carburetor. I just tightened then tested. That fixed my issue..
