The 50-1 fuel should not be enough oil in it to cause the mower from not starting! I use it to start engine all the time. Have you checked the fule solnoid in the carburetor to be sure it opens when you turn the key on? When did engine last run? Do you have good fuel flow to the carburetor from the fuel pump?
