Hereof, what would cause gas to come out the exhaust?
This is caused by excess fuel in the fuel/air mixture and it can be cause by a few different parts failing. The most likely parts causing these problems are a leaking fuel injector, a fuel regulator that's stuck closed, or a restricted fuel return line.
Subsequently, question is, what happens if you leave gas in lawnmower over winter? Unused gas left in a mower over the winter can get stale, gumming up the carburetor and inviting rust. Turn the mower off and allow the engine to cool, then siphon excess gas into a clean can. (You can put this gas in your car, provided it hasn't been mixed with oil.)
Also Know, why is lawn mower blowing out oil?
An excess of blue or white smoke could mean that oil has a pathway into the combustion chamber through worn seals. It could also be a blown head gasket, which will soak the air filter with oil. Unless you happen to be a small engine mechanic, these problems need a professional lawn mower repair.
Why is water coming out of my exhaust pipe?
This kind of white smoke is caused by water condensation from the catalytic converter. Water is a byproduct of the internal combustion engine. During the night the engine cools down, and this water condenses on the exhaust system. Air, fuel, oil, and coolant are all used for the smooth running of the engine.
