I have a /S 625E, got it out of storage, filled it with oil

Resolved Question:

I have a B/S 625E, got it out of storage, filled it with oil & petrol, ckeaned plug. It started but ran slowly, I took the oil cap off and it speeded up, put it back on and it slowed again; it's pumping out quite a bit of white smoke, any ideas?

Could the oil level be over the full line? Very important that oil is not over filled! And oi does not smell of petrol? If it does, change the oil and fill to full mark only.
