Explain this

So I went the other day and bought new air filters, fuel filters and spark plugs for all my trimmers, edgers, ect. They are all redmax, 1 year old, same motors. So I replace all the parts on all the equipment and put everything back on the truck. A couple of days go by and today all the air filters are soaked with gas, gas coming out of the exhaust, everything's flooded and won't crank. What happened. I've been doing this for years, and never seen this. The equipment ran fine before the tune ups, I just replace these parts every year for maintenance.

I have an echo trimmer that does that. Always blamed the fuel tank vent, but never bothered to check it.

These redmax only have a vent in the gas cap. Maybe it needs a new one
