On my very small operation, the actual cost of fuel isn't that great. BUt when it's time to refill the tank I wish I'd restored a John Deere R instead of my D. The B I use for most chores is pretty easy on fuel, so I guess it evens out. At todays prices LP has some real advantages.

For most jobs around the yard I will try to use the Massey Super 90. That Perkins diesel just can't be beat for economy. You've likely all seen the videos of my gas Cockshutts in use too. 50 runs the hammer mill and the 40 has the snowblower mounted on it all winter. Their biggest advantage is that if I ever needed a tractor started right away in an emergency it would be the gas tractors. None of the diesels would start without an hour at least of pre heating. Even if its below zero, if the old gas tractors will turn over they will start. I try not to think too much about the $4.50 a gallon gas that they burn.
