It depends on how hard the engine is working on how much fuel it uses, no matter what kind of work it is doing. Make sure the blades are sharp ALL the time, besides making it easier to cut it will make a much nicer cut on your grass. Try and keep a constant speed on the engine, you should not be changing engine speed all the time on a PTO driven implement, it is designed to run at a more or less continuous speed (3/4 throttle = 540 PTO revs). Any variation in traveling speed should be done with the gearbox, if you need to keep varying your traveling speed, you should drop a gear as you are going too fast. You should not be varying the throttle or slipping the Clutch all the time. Select a gear that will give you the correct speed using the 3/4 throttle setting....John(UK)...firstname.lastname@example.org
