I'm one of the first guys to stand up in defense of a gas engine in a pickup, but if you're talking about a tractor forget it, a diesel is the only way to go. I once used a small tractor/backhoe with a 20hp Kohler gas engine and it was a gutless turd. Even running at full throttle the backhoe hydraulics would almost stall the engine. In a small tractor a diesel will give you half the fuel consumption and probably four times the engine life. The little diesels in tractors can easily go 10,000 hours if properly cared for.
