I would probably guess that your needle and seat assy could be leaking, it is probably stuck open from old gas (varnish,) or possible your fuel tank vent is plugged, Good luck

Ive had that happen to my jiffy a few times, it only happens if stored on its side with the gas tank above the motor, gravity is the culprit, store with the tank below the motor.

Hey Minneman, hit the other boards "freshwater fishing" forum. Somebody there has a question to ask about LOTW that you might be able to answer.

I just sent him a PM suggesting he also come to FishingMinnesota.com and ask around.
