When I try to start the mower it blows straight gas out of the exhaust pipe.

You probably have some debris stopping the needle on the float inside the carburetor from sealing. You also probably have gas in the crankcase. This gas will dilute the oil and cause serious damage to the engine.

If this is the case, clean the needle and seat and let fresh gasoline flush any debris out of the seat. Replace the oil in the crankcase and the fuel line to the carburetor.
