2011 X-One Gas Hog??

OK, here goes. I use super-z's at work, we mow sometimes for hours fill up once maybe. I just bought a 2011 Hustler X-one 25hp KAW 54" VX4 deck. I have a 1/3 of an acre at home. I mowed once and half way through the second mowing I had already used 5gal of fuel, WTF?? The tractor only has 1.3hrs on it. Are these things this much of gas hogs??? Please Help. I think your name is PJ, if this is the natural of the beast does Hustler have a buy back policy?? Not happy at this point.

It used 5 gallons in 1.3 hours?
Your dealer needs to look at this, something isn't right.
Have you contacted them yet?
