I picked up a MF 1200 Garden Tractor. The gas cap says 50:1 fuel to oil. Does this engine require a mix or do I just have the wrong cap?

I think it's the wrong cap, but that may just be me.

Sounds like the wrong cap to me.

 

However, using 50:1 mix will remove all mosquitoes from the area and keep noisy neighbors from being able to look at your yard from across the fence.
