Are you just making short trips? Your engine may not be warming up enough to evaporate the excess fuel required during startup.

The cause can only be the carb. Remove it and rebuid it with all new gaskets making sure you clean it well, and remove all the old gaskets. It's leaking in one way or another. The needle and seat, choke sticking, or a bad gasket. Follow the repair manual to set the choke and float. Remove the egr and clean all the carbon out of it and the passages with carb cleaner. Clean your pcv valve and check the hoses for blockage. Then change your oil. Good luck.
