hello,
Doing a little research on my oil consumption for a comparison .
To all the diesel owners of ztr please state your
1/ engine oil consumption between services
2/ service interval 50 hrs or 100hrs etc
3/ machine hrs

Is up to 1/2 quart about the correct usage in 100hrs???????

I have the Yanmar 3TNV88 engine on my mower.

1/ engine oil consumption between services -- usually add no oil.
2/ service interval -------------------------- 225 to 250 hours
3/ machine hrs ----------------------------- 950 machine hours

My previous two Yanmar diesels used a lot more oil.

My Kubota ZD21 doesnt use any in 100 hours
The Kubota ZD28 uses about .5 quart in 100 hours.
