So unless you have one these Vintage Mower I’m sexy and I mow it shirt Lawn-Boy mowers, you do not *mix* oil in the gas. Apparently the Lawn Boy 2-stroke was produced until 2004. The most prolific yard equipment today using 2-stroke engines are string trimmers, blowers, edgers, and other small hand held equipment. And many of these small 2-stroke engines powered equipment is being replaced with small 4-stroke engines where you do not mix oil with the gas. To answer your question: If you are talking about a 4-stroke engine powered piece of lawn equipment, depending on how much oil is in the gas, the engine will smoke excessively, run poorly and eventually foul the spark plug such that it won’t run at all. If you do, in fact, have a 2-stroke engine on your mower then using too much oil will have the same effect.

Best Vintage Mower I’m sexy and I mow it shirt
I’ve never had a problem with a Toro mower, Vintage Mower I’m sexy and I mow it shirt but I preferred Honda over them primarily due to one key detail: when I needed a self-propelled, bagging mower, I remembered my old late 80’s Honda PX and early 90’s Craftsman. Both were 21″ baggers and mulch-capable, but neither were self-propelled. They were heavy, to begin with, and with the bag on and making part of a pass down the yard, they got insanely heavy. A neighbor of mine had a Toro, very similar, but self-propelled. The drive wheels were in the front. I noticed that once there was any weight in the bag, and the weight shifted rearward, the drive wheels started to slip, and it took more effort to push the mower. By the time the bag was a third full, it wasn’t self-propelled anymore, I was doing all the work.
