Tiller won't start, incorrect fuel ratio?

My tiller is currently filled with gas at 50:1 ratio, after reading the manual it should have been 20:1. Will this cause the tiller to be unable to start? What is correct 20:1 ratio, gas ounces to oil ounces?

1 ounce of oil to 20 ounces of gas will make a 20:1 ratio.

or 1 gal of oil to 20 gal of gas

or 1 ml of oil to 20 ml of gas

or 1 barrel of oil to 20 barrels of gas

or 1 truckload---

I'm not funny am I?

Sorry--I couldn't resist

I guess this is why your Supertech, and I'm stumped...

It was a stupid question (yes there are stupid questions) now that I have read it a second time.

My point is will the incorrect ratio prevent the tiller from starting?

No, it won't prevent the engine from starting... unless, perhaps, the engine was run with this ratio in it before and it caused damage to the engine.
