If you lost a half tank you should be able to see clear signs of it on the tractor such as peeling paint. I think you probably have a thief in your midst. Get one of those cheap trail cams and set it up somewhere close and I"ll bet you"ll find out where your gas is going.|
Think I'll start parking it in back after this snow is gone. Only evidence of leaks is hydraulic fluid. I should take the pump off and put in a new shaft seal... that's the worst leak I have. I have added about 2 1/2 gal. since I bought the tractor about 7-8 years ago, but most within the last 2 years so it's getting worse.
added: Amazing what a little gas will do. Fired right up after dumpung a 5 gallon can in her. opened up the driveway, not pretty, but should be able to get either vehicle out. The old '95 F-150 is sitting where it will have to melt first, but it pretty much stays hooked to the utility trailer and I won't need it for a while, but my AWD Hyundai Santa Fe and wife's LS should get out okay. We have a circle drive about 180' off the road and only opened one side as it's supposed to get into the 40s by Sunday and it should melt off. This post was edited by IH fan at 12:05:04 02/22/13.
