    Hello so I was wondering why my 3 month Husqvarna 150bt is leaking gas out of carburetor and onto air filter soaking it on the bottom? It only has about 5 hours on it if that. Is this normal possibly? I only use it once a week for about 45 minutes per use. Now yes I know I should just be taking it in for warranty since I'm concerned but yeah I just wanted to ask if this was possibly normal. Thank you for the help!!!

    BTW there was more (blue) gas mix there sitting all over but I cleaned it off completely, cleaned the bottom of the air filter, put it back together and turned it on for 1 minute, turned it off then took it apart again and the photos show what happened after 1 minute of use... the photos are showing the blue gas and BTW also I use golden colored oil for the foam filter not blue.
