<SPAN id=_ctl1_ctlTopic_ctlPanelBar_ctlTopicsRepeater__ctl2_lblFullMessage>On your motor, the most likely cause is a ruptured diaphragm in the fuel pump. You should have a yellow hose from the pump going up to the carb. Check it for fuel. Normally there should not be any. If the diaphragm leaks it can go up to hose to carb. On a car it would dup on the ground.

Carb unit?.....The float in the carb can be stuck in the down position. Had this happen on BOTH a lawn mower and generator. There are only 3 ways for fuel to get into the oil pan that I can think of. 1) Fuel pump..as mentioned. 2) Through the intake, carb or injectors. 3) Added fuel directly into the engine by way of where you add oil:doh by who?..no ones guess. Non of which is a major fix, but definitely needs to be found and stopped. HOW much fuel are we talking about.:banghead
