In Reply to: Fuel usage ? posted by DON TX on September 16, 2012 at 18:13:31:

Thanks John(UK) for the info. I usualy mow (lawn groming) at full throttle 3rd gear sustained. I mite try the 1/2 to 3/4 throttle. However mostly i am interested in getting the job done as fast as possible and there is rarely ever any grass heavy enuf to bog the engine.

Let us consider the 1500 rpm 3/4 throttle sustained operation at 1 gal/hr. vs somekind of more standard or common fuel consumption measurements.

My 56 Packard will run about 16 miles/gal at 1500 rpm = 40 mph. Assuming that is a SUSTAINED 40 mph. So in 1 hour it will run 40 miles and use 40/16 = 2.5 gallons.

So the Ferguson IS rather economical for fuel consumption especialy since it is operating under load.

Anyone can use any car gas mileage they want to use for their own comparison. Even at 32 mpg modern car would equate to 1.25 gallons/hour if i've done the math rite. (Assuming overdrive allows 1500 rpm at 40 mph which is probably about par).
