Way too much oil. Your plug is most likely fouled. 13:1 is way too rich with oil but at least you didn't burn it up. Like azkronic said,"can't say it wasn't lubricated"

If you are going to err, its better to err on too much oil than too little. Too little will fry your engine. Too much will kill every mosquito in your neighborhood.
