Try this, Remove the gas cap when you shut it off, it has pressure built up in the tank, that is how some of them work. You have a valve in the carb that is not working properly, you are close to a carb rebuild, until it really gets bad just loosen the gas cap when you are finished using it. Have a nice day. Geo

The cap-loosening trick is just a bandaid, you need to rebuild the carburetor.
