I have trouble making the numbers work for you if you only burn a gallon or so an hour. I'd check that number, but there's more to it than just that.

You'll also want to look into whether or not there's a place near you where could buy the offroad fuel and what they price it at for a small quantity.

Figure your time to get there and back, the price of gas you burn getting the diesel fuel ....

I love diesel, but hard to make a case for it saving you money if your mower is that efficient where you're mowing.
