The problem sounds like you have flooded the carbon canister and the purge valve is stuck open allowing fuel to get into the purge line and be sucked into the engine unmetered. Have the purge valve and carbon canister vent checked and replace vent valve and purge valve. If canister is flooded with fuel then you may have to replace it also.
