If its running ok when you are moving, but "leaking fuel" noticeably from the air filter area, its possible that the float tang is bent. Inside the bowl under the carburetor, there is a plastic float ring, and a thin metal "fork" that connects that float to a little pin/valve. If its not working right (bent, hanging up, set to close with float too high or low), the engine could "flood".
