On the basis all the obvious things are OK ( kill cord, fuel tap etc ) ...take it to someone else.....

He may have seen it run for a five secs , but sounds like it needs some proper TLC or careful DIY work on cleaning carbs , and set up etc .

Possibly 100:1 but I suggest you just get the motor looked at by a pro. Unlikely to be too much oil causing that.

That's correct, 100ml oil to 10 litres fuel is 100:1 so you haven't done anything wrong.

Take it somewhere else!

That shouldn't worry the performance too much other than to improve it.
I hope that price included the parts.
