Needle for sure, Shake the float and if you feel fuel inside replace that as well.

You may also want to check your oil and make sure that gas did not fill your engine sump and dilute your oil. Pull the dipstick and check for a higher level then normal and also the excess smell of fuel in the crank case. If you do find it filled your engine also then simply drain and repl the filter and add fresh oil per your manufactures specs. Of course this after you fix the first issue
