Unhappy accidently added oil/gas mixer to lawnmower

Hello,

I added oil/gas mixer to my riding lawnmower on accident. This mixer was made for my weedeater. I don't know exactly what to do and if this will harm the lawnmower. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks,

I think the worst that can happen is that the spark plug may get fouled and your mower will smoke out of the exhaust. Dilute it with pure gas every chance you get and let it work itself out. Check the spark plug if it gets hard to start.

I'd drain the tank and have another spark plug ready.

Go ahead and run the gas/oil mix that,s in the lawnmower and keep adding fresh gas till you work it out of the tank. This will not hurt your lawnmower.
