    My friend mixed oil with gas in his push lawn mower, now he says it won,t run at all. Maybe cleaning of carb, and tank, filter,plug may get this going again. Thanks

    two cycle oil with gas? he shouldn't have any problems at all. Try pulling the plug and drying it off and trying again. It's probably water in his tank, had that problem before runs fine shuts off like its out of fuel added fuel pulled for 15 mins or so and boom she fired right up it'll wear you out if its recoil start. Good luck
