I have a Rover Push lawn mower. Type 02031, Serial Number 0254990, Briggs and Stratton Quantam40 XTRA. My son has put two stroke petrol mix into this 4 stroke mower. Is this a problem?

Your mower is likely to throw out clouds of blue smoke, just as a 2 stroke engine does.

The spark plug may become oily and fouled, misfire and splutter/stall.

However, it's not a really serious problem and you're not going to cause any permanent damage. The easiest solution is to get a tube and syphon the 2 stroke mix out of the mower's fuel tank.

Air gap setting for 4 stroke rover mower model no 30694

I cant seem to get your model number to work for me but under Rover push mowers it looks like they use Briggs and Stratton engines so if true Air Gap: 0.203/0.305 mm (0.008/0.012 in.)
The way I do it is fold a piece of printer paper one inch folds four thickness, wrap around flywheel, roll the flywheel around so the magnet is pulling the coil up tight to the flywheel,the four thickness of the printer paper is your air gap, then tighten the screws . Pull on the paper as you rotate the flywheel to remove it. Dont forget to check that the little wire is plugged in other wise it wont shut off. Replace the spark plug and spark plug boot/wire as well as the flywheel cover and it should start up.

Lawn mower not running well

Try changing the fuel and air filters. Also drain the fuel tank and refill with fresh fuel.

2-stroke or 4-stroke?

Well, if it has an oil drain plug and/or a fill plug for oil, It's a 4 stroke. If it has an odd shaped muffler/resonator, it's a 2 stroke.

White smoke coming from 4 stroke lawn mower

It is most likely oil. Probably passing past the rings on the piston. I use 2 stroke oil in all my mowers / small motors whether they are 2 stroke or 4 stroke (based on advice from a small motor repairer) since the 2 stroke oil helps lubricate the bore and even though there is some minimal smoke usually on start-up. Depending on how bad the smoke is you can try a heavier grade oil and I would recommend using a 25:1 2 stroke mix if you want to extend the life of your small motors.

I got hold of a sanli 350 lawn mower 4 stroke the people gave me a bottle of 2 stroke oil with the mower is this the right oil to use

No No No No!!! If your mower is definitely a 4 stroke then do NOT put 2 cycle engine oil in it (and I hope they didn't either). Drain out whatever's in there completely and put standard 30 wt. oil in there. Not 10W30, but straight 30 weight. Use synthetic even if you want longer engine life.

Rover lawn mower is not working

Make sure you get a spark, Clean the gas tank, maybe even go as far as cleaning the carb, make sure everything is like new and start it up.
