I have a Troy Bilt 2600 pressure washer and accidentally ran a full tank of oil gas mixed instead is just gas. It ran fine and started easily so I didn't know I grabbed the wrong can until i ran out of gas and so I stopped for the day. when I went to refill I realized what I had done so I used gasoline only to fill it back up again, but now I can't get it to start. What can I do now? I have no idea!

Know the answer or have a comment? Post it here!

Well it is a Honda engine, notorious for not starting or being hard to start. But, drain and flush the tank, fuel line and float bowl with gas and even the spark plug. If that doesn't do, then the oil mixture may have carried sediment from the tank into the carburetor jet. See this video, "EASY FIX! HONDA PRESSURE WASHER that will not start after storage (plugged carburetor main jet)", for that procedure https://www.youtube.com/wat...
