    This past week.. I've taken my Echo weed eater off the rack and find that the air filter is soaked with gas. What's wrong with it? It's in the upright position..

    I had the same problem with my Shiny last year. There was a vent tube that was blocked I think. I just dropped it off for repair....

    I get that all the time since i got it repaired early this year. I have to put it in my truck sideways with the card up, or it floods and I have to take the filter off, blow in there to dry it some, then crank 150 times.......... i figure at $2 a gallon, this problem is mucho exspensive!!! I can live with it, as long as I store it right, but still a PITA. try putting the carb up between houses, see of that works for now.
