If the engine is backfiring it could be sending pressure backthrough the carburetor into the gas tank.

What mower and engine do you have and is there a fuel pump on it?

Push mower, riding mower, zero turn? Need more info than just this.

My first thought is tank to close to the exhaust or hole in the exhaust making it hot.
