    HI Masterlink, well I had that happen with my HS 4-stroke, and I was bummed, might want to change the oil again just to be sure you are purged.
    #1 make sure your petcock is clean and shuts off well
    #2 use the shutoff on the carb
    #3 keep an eye on it, it is very hard on the engine to run it full of Gas0oil

    Mine only did it once, and HS does not have the carb shutoff.

    If you suspect your shut-off, drain the carb when you shut down, and try draining it again before you restart.
