Gas in oil tank

Help! We bought a new Toro recycler mower about 2 months ago. The other day my 15 year old son accidentally poured a GAS/OIL mix into the oil tank on the mower to get the oil level up to the fill line! (he realized what he did after the fact). He did use the mower afterward without an issue but now I'm wondering if the engine is now going to be toast since he used the mower. Any thoughts? Besides changing the oil is there anything I can do? TIA!

Changing the oil is all that should be necessary. If he only added enough to bring it to the full line which probably wasn't much, most of it probably evaporated while he was using it. Have a nice day. Geo
