B&S 3.5hp problems

I have a commercial sprayer with a B&S engine; 82232 4007 01 92120703.
I was using it tonight, when it died (like running out of fuel type dying).
I topped up the fuel, and it won't start.
It seems to be burning a lot of oil; spark is sparking; topped up oil, and still nothing...

Any suggestions as to next step?!

3.5 hp engine

Next thing to see is if the piston is moving. Take out spark plug and turn the engine with a screwdriver in the plug hole and see it engine is turning.

If you have good spark, I would put a sqirt of gas or carb cleaner in plug hole and see if it will run that out, if that works you have a fuel issue. Look at fuel filter, loosen the gas cap, or it could just need a good carb cleaning. It could be jet on carb is plugged up.
