ZTR owners: How many acres can you mow on a tank of gas?

How many acres can you mow on a full tank of gas (and how big is your gas tank)?

Hard to say but I can tell you i can mow 8 hrs non stop
15 gallons of gass So at 7.5 hrs I head to truck to load up get more gas
Acres I would say 5 acres per 1.5 gal of gas

I get 1.4 gal per hour with 14 gals of gas, gives me 10 hours of use. I'm slow, so I'll say about 10 acres per fill up. I'm getting faster this year so I might could mow 15 acres per fill up.

That's my story.
