Fuel Leaking from tube on bottom of carb

I have a 2007 Outlander 400 The other day I parked on a slope facing downhill and noticed fuel dripping from a little 1/8" tube connected to the bottom of the carburetor. Anybody have an idea what might cause this and also the hose appears to have a metal tube on the end but I cannot find where it should be connected to? Also anyone know where I might find a shop manual that will show it? I went to the dealer and looking at the screen I could not tell where it goes. Thanks in advance for any help on this. I do not want to start a fire.

that usually means the float is stuck open in the carburetor
run some seafoam with the gas and it should help.
had that happen before..sometimes just riding it and getting some fresh tanks of gas through it will stop it too but i have had good luck with seafoam..
